The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to John O’Keefe, May-Britt Moser, and Edvard I. Moser “for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain.” Over the past two decades, considerable information has been gained about the neural systems that determine place location, map the environment, and allow animals and humans to navigate through space. This Collection focuses on studies that provide insights into these neural systems in animal models (both vertebrates and invertebrates) and humans.
