• Behavior-dependent directional tuning in the human visual-navigation network 

      Nau, Matthias (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The brain derives cognitive maps from sensory experience that guide memory formation and behavior. Despite extensive efforts, it still remains unclear how the underlying population activity unfolds during spatial navigation ...
    • Deforming the metric of cognitive maps distorts memory 

      Bellmund, Jacob Lukas Sarid; de Cothi, William; Ruiter, Tom; Nau, Matthias; Barry, Caswell; Doeller, Christian Fritz Andreas (Journal article, 2019)
      Environmental boundaries anchor cognitive maps that support memory. However, trapezoidal boundary geometry distorts the regular firing patterns of entorhinal grid cells, proposedly providing a metric for cognitive maps. ...
    • Hexadirectional coding of visual space in human entorhinal cortex 

      Nau, Matthias; Schröder, Tobias Navarro; Bellmund, Jacob Lukas Sarid; Doeller, Christian Fritz Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Entorhinal grid cells map the local environment, but their involvement beyond spatial navigation remains elusive. We examined human functional MRI responses during a highly controlled visual tracking task and show that ...
    • How the Brain's Navigation System Shapes Our Visual Experience 

      Nau, Matthias; Julian, Joshua Benjamin; Doeller, Christian Fritz Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      We explore the environment not only by navigating, but also by viewing our surroundings with our eyes. Here we review growing evidence that the mammalian hippocampal formation, extensively studied in the context of navigation ...
    • Interpreting wide-band neural activity using convolutional neural networks 

      Frey, Markus; Doeller, Christian Fritz Andreas; Tanni, Sander; Perrodin, Catherine; O'Leary, Alice; Nau, Matthias; Kelly, Jack; Banino, Andrea; Bendor, Daniel; Lefort, Julie; Caswell, Barry (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Rapid progress in technologies such as calcium imaging and electrophysiology has seen a dramatic increase in the size and extent of neural recordings. Even so, interpretation of this data requires considerable knowledge ...
    • Magnetic resonance-based eye tracking using deep neural networks 

      Frey, Markus; Nau, Matthias; Doeller, Christian F. (Journal article, 2021)
      Viewing behavior provides a window into many central aspects of human cognition and health, and it is an important variable of interest or confound in many functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies. To make eye ...
    • Perception and the cognitive map - Deriving a stable world from visual inputs 

      Nau, Matthias (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:32, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      Norsk sammendrag Hjernen skaper stabile og sammenhengende representasjoner av verden fra omskiftelige perseptuelle input. Denne prosessen involverer et omfattende nettverk i hjernen, fra de tidlige synssentrene på lavt ...
