Arne Ekstrom is Assistant Professor, Center For Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis. The primary mission of his lab is to better understand the neurophysiological basis of human memory. Their particular focus is on spatial memory and attempting to understand the cognitive and neural components underlying it. They employ several different recording methodologies to better understand spatial memory, including intracranial EEG, fMRI, and scalp EEG. Studies in the lab focus on how human hippocampal theta oscillations code for aspects of a spatial layout, which brain areas are involved in overview and first-person representations, how navigation and memory processing are represented in overlapping or unique brain systems, and how the different recording modalities they use tie together or provide complementary information about underlying brain processes.

The advent of computer-based navigation systems and navigation aids, like GPS and google-maps, has revolutionized human spatial navigation. No longer do we require conventional fold-up maps, with their difficult to use look-up systems, and for many of us, “getting lost” is now a thing of the past. Read more.
