In several species, spatial behaviors are essential to find nutriments, partners, suitable habitats, and to escape life-threatening predators. To navigate efficiently, our brain constructs internal representations of the world surrounding us. My research group investigates how these internal representations are generated. Our principal experimental approach is to record the activity of neurons in mice during exploratory behavior.
