Navigation: More than a hippocampal affair

Professor Matteo Carandini, who runs a joint research group with Professor Kenneth Harris at University College London, kicked off the 2018 NEUReka! seminar series at the Centre for Developmental Neuroscience, King’s College London. During his talk he illustrated how brain areas outside the hippocampus, such as the primary visual cortex and the posterior parietal cortex, are also involved in navigation. Check out our latest Neureka! blog post that is up on the Scientifca website which discusses Matteos talk:
