Virtual Lecture by Joshua Jacobs: Neural basis of human spatial navigation and memory

Joshua Jacobs is an associate professor at Columbia University. His laboratory examines 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 implanted surgically in deep brain structures. Via these recordings, he and his team identify neural patterns that reveal how the brain represents memory for spatial locations and maps.


This talk will be visible and audible through a platform, called „Zoom“. If you would like to participate, please register by sending an e-mail to Cordula Ullah by April 22, 2020
