The Hippocampus Encodes Distances in Multidimensional Feature Space

By | News, Research | No Comments
In our latest paper, now out in Current Biology, we show that as a result of concept learning, the human hippocampus encodes distances between points in a multidimensional feature space defined along task-relevant perceptual dimensions. These findings support the view that hippocampal coding principles provide a metric for “cognitive space” beyond navigation.
