How brain cells work together for spatial memory and imagery

Researchers Neil Burgess and Andrej Bicanski from University College London (UCL) have developed a computational model showing how the mental images we have drawn from our memories can be explained by the firing of individual brain cells. The model was published in the open access journal eLife. The work contributes to HBP´s research area of Theoretical Neuroscience, where Prof. Burgess leads a task on “Models of Spatial Memory”. Within HBP the team also extensively collaborates with colleagues from the area of Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience. Read more about it in the UCL press release:
