We examine the neural basis of human spatial navigation and spatial memory.

This work is performed by conducting direct brain recordings from epilepsy patients that have electrodes (micro- and macro-wires) implanted surgically in deep brain structures, mostly in the Medial Temporal Lobe.

Via these recordings, we identify neural patterns that reveal how the brain represents memory for spatial locations and maps.
