My work with a team from University College London and Universitat Pompeu Fabra,”Human hippocampal theta oscillations reflect sequential dependencies during spatial planning” was recently published in Cognitive Neuroscience. We found that human hippocampal theta power changes relate to successfully planning a sequence of spatial decisions in novel environments.

“Entorhinal transformations in abstract frames of reference” by Karl Friston and I was just published in PLoS Biology. We found that the human entorhinal cortex and subiculum, brain regions that integrate first person and environmental spatial coordinates during navigation, also help us relate social knowledge about other people to ourselves.
This finding is particularly exciting because it highlights a potential novel neural mechanism underlying how we learn about other people and relate to them. Moreover, our findings provide clues about how we can use map-like learning strategies in non-spatial tasks.

I recently uploaded a new manuscript to bioRxiv titled “Hippocampal-entorhinal transformations in abstract frames of reference”, where we show that the human entorhinal cortex and subiculum help transform metrically coded decision variables from relative to absolute coordinates. Here’s a link to the manuscript…
