  • Animal cognition
  • Behavioral processes involved in spatial memory and navigation in animals
  • Neural substrates of spatial cognition : hippocampus and neocortical areas
  • Goal-directed behavior
  • Prefrontal cortex and planning
  • Information coding by populations of neurons (e.g., place and head direction cells)
  • and others ...
