• Entorhinal transformations in abstract frames of reference 

      Kaplan, Raphael; Friston, Karl (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Knowing how another’s preferences relate to our own is a central aspect of everyday decision-making, yet how the brain performs this transformation is unclear. Here, we ask whether the putative role of the hippocampal–entorhinal ...
    • Human hippocampal theta oscillations reflect sequential dependencies during spatial planning. 

      Kaplan, Raphael; Tauste Campo, Adria; Bush, Daniel; King, John; Principe, Alessandro; Koster, Raphael; Ley Nacher, Miguel; Rocamora, Rodrigo; Friston, Karl (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Movement-related theta oscillations in rodent hippocampus coordinate ‘forward sweeps’ of location-specific neural activity that could be used to evaluate spatial trajectories online. This raises the possibility that increases ...
    • The role of mental maps in decision-making 

      Kaplan, Raphael; Schuck, Nicolas W.; Doeller, Christian F. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A growing body of work is investigating the use of mental maps during decision-making. Here we discuss how decision-making organizes experiences according to an internal model of the current task, thereby structuring memory. ...
