About this book

Reviews the evidence that each area is involved in spatial cognition, examines the mechanisms underlying the generation of spatial behaviours in humans and other animals, and considers the relative roles of the parietal and hippocampal areas, including how each interacts with the other. Written by leading experts in cognitive neuroscience, this book represents the state of the art of current research into the neural basis of spatial cognition.

Contents

1. Integrating hippocampal and parietal functions: a spatial point of view; PARIETAL CORTEX; 2. Spatial frames of reference and somatosensory processing: a neuropsychological perspective; 3. Spatial orientation and the representation of space with parietal lobe lesions; 4. Egocentric and object-based visual neglect; 5. Multimodal integration for the representation of space in the posterior parietal cortex; 6. Parietal cortex constructions action-oriented spatial representations; 7. A new view of hemineglect based on the response properties of parietal neurones; THE HIPPOCAMPAL FORMATION; 8. Robotic and neuronal simulation of the hippocampus and navigation; 9. Dissociation of exteroceptive and ideothetic orientation cues: effect on hippocampal place cells and place navigation; 10. Variable place-cell coupling to a continuously viewed stimulus: evidence that the hippocampus acts as a perceptual system; 11. Separating hippocampal maps; 12. Hippocampal synaptic plasticity: role in spatial learning or the automatic recording of attended experience; 13. Right medial temporal-lobe contribution to object-location memory; 14. The hippocampus and spatial memory in humans; 15. Hierarchical organisation of cognitive memory; INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PARIETAL AND HIPPOCAMPAL SYSTEMS IN SPACE AND MEMORY; 16. Memory reprocessing in coricocortial and hippocampocortical neuronal ensembles; 17. The representaiton of space in the primate hippocampus, and its role in memory; 18. Amnesia and neglect: beyond the Delay-Brion system and the Hebb synapse; 19. Representation of allocentric space in the monkey frontal lobe; 20. Parietal and hippocampal contribution to topokinetic and topographic memory; 21. Hippocampal involvement in human topographical memory: evidence from functional imaging; 22. Parietal cortex and hippocampus: from visual affordances to the world graph; 23. Visuospatial processing in a pure case of visual-form agnosia
