Neural mechanisms underlying advanced cognition in humans

Abstract:

Humans have a remarkable capacity for generalizing experiences to novel situations. In a brain network that has expanded the most during mammalian evolution, known as the default mode network, grid cells and place cells organize spatial representations into mental maps. The aim of this thesis is to use non-invasive functional magnetic resonance imaging and computational analyses to test how well-understood codes at the single-cell level in animals also generalize to complex human behaviour...
