HOW DOES THE BRAIN KNOW WHERE IT IS,

WHERE IT IS GOING,

AND HOW TO GET FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER?

Ground-breaking discoveries made over the last several decades have uncovered the neural systems involved

in spatial cognition and navigation, but how these systems work remains to be elucidated: solving this

problem will require interdisciplinary collaboration, as will using this knowledge to improve human wellbeing.

To address these pressing issues, we have created a novel meeting that aims to bring together a diverse

group of scientists from backgrounds such as systems neuroscience, human cognitive (neuro)science, animal

behaviour and ethology, theoretical neurobiology and robotics.

Participants present their work via talks and posters, and there will be ample opportunities for discussion.  

Organized by      •  Dave Dickman, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston | USA

•  Kate Jeffery, UCL, London | UK

•  Mayank Mehta, UCLA, Los Angeles | USA

•  Laure Rondi-Reig, CNRS-UPMC, Paris | FRANCE

•  Jeffrey Taube, Dartmouth College, Hanover | USA

•  Thomas Wolbers, German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, Magdeburg | GERMANY¬†

This symposium is timed to precede the July 2-6 FENS conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, allowing for

attendance at both meetings.
