Beyond the Cognitive Map: From Place Cells to Episodic by A. David Redish

By A. David Redish

There are presently significant theories concerning the function of the hippocampus, a particular constitution behind the temporal lobe. One says that it shops a cognitive map, the opposite that it's a key locus for the transitority garage of episodic stories. A. David Redish takes the procedure that realizing the position of the hippocampus in house will give the chance to handle its function in much less simply quantifiable components equivalent to reminiscence. Basing his research at the learn of rodent navigation--one of the first domain names for knowing info processing in the brain--he locations the hippocampus in its anatomical context as a part of a better sensible system.Redish attracts at the broad experimental and theoretical paintings of the final a hundred years to color a coherent photo of rodent navigation. His presentation encompasses a number of degrees of study, from single-unit recording effects to behavioral initiatives to computational modeling. From this origin, he proposes a singular figuring out of the function of the hippocampus in rodents which could make clear the position of the hippocampus in primates, explaining info from primate experiences and human neurology. The e-book can be of curiosity not just to neuroscientists and psychologists, but additionally to researchers in laptop technology, robotics, synthetic intelligence, and synthetic lifestyles.
