Cognitive neuroscience: navigating human verbal memory

Curr Biol. 2014 Feb 17;24(4):R167-8. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2013.12.043.


A recent study in humans shows that the same neurons that represent location during spatial navigation also code elements of verbal recall. This study thus provides a critical missing link between two previously unconnected functions of the hippocampus.
