Spatial and Temporal Cognition

The hippocampus and surrounding medial temporal lobe (MTL) contain cell types that represent place, time and are important for memory. Both brain regions are conserved across species implying general function. For years this function has been suggested in pattern separation, pattern completion, and attractor dynamics that would be necessary for memory. This winter term we first examine recent evidence for pattern completion, pattern separation and attractor dynamics based on the anatomy and circuitry of the hippocampus. Later we will broaden the view and look at papers on how hippocampus and MTL are related to time and space.
