    Computations underlying Drosophila photo-taxis, odor-taxis, and multi-sensory integration

    Ruben Gepner et al.
    Optogenetics and reverse-correlation have decoded the computations by which the Drosophila larva makes navigational decisions on the basis of time-varying sensory neuron activity.

    Mice in a labyrinth show rapid learning, sudden insight, and efficient exploration

    Matthew Rosenberg et al.
    Mice exploring a labyrinth freely for the first time learn a complex action sequence after a handful of rewards, exhibiting a learning rate 1000-fold higher than in commonly-used paradigms.

    Corollary discharge promotes a sustained motor state in a neural circuit for navigation

    Ni Ji et al.
    A primary sensory interneuron in the thermotaxis circuit of C. elegans integrates sensory input and corollary discharge to drive persistent navigational states and movement towards preferred environments.

    A decentralised neural model explaining optimal integration of navigational strategies in insects

    Xuelong Sun et al.
    The first biology-constrained neural model of insect navigation guidance systems was explained including path integration, visual homing and route following, and their optimal coordination.

    Entorhinal cortex receptive fields are modulated by spatial attention, even without movement

    Niklas Wilming et al.
    Moving covert attention can activate spatial representations in the Entorhinal cortex.

    Representation of visual landmarks in retrosplenial cortex

    Lukas F Fischer et al.
    Retrosplenial cortex encodes landmarks by integrating visual inputs with other task-related variables in a supralinear fashion.

    Framing of grid cells within and beyond navigation boundaries

    Francesco Savelli et al.
    Grid-cell maps can be aligned to both local and remote reference frames, suggesting that they provide a metric for space beyond the navigationally accessible boundaries of the local environment.

    Walking Drosophila navigate complex plumes using stochastic decisions biased by the timing of odor encounters

    Mahmut Demir et al.
    Visualized odor encounters show that Drosophila navigate spatiotemporally complex odor plumes using random walks biased by the timing of brief and unpredictable odor encounters.

    Temporal identity establishes columnar neuron morphology, connectivity, and function in a Drosophila navigation circuit

    Luis F Sullivan et al.
    The Eyeless/Pax6 temporal transcription factor generates neuronal identity, connectivity, and flight navigation behavior within the conserved adult brain structure called the central complex.

    Reconceiving the hippocampal map as a topological template

    Yuri Dabaghian et al.
    Empirical evidence suggests that the hippocampus constructs maps of spatial environments based on the relative locations of places (i.e., topology), rather than absolute distances and coordinates (i.e., geometry).
