A gravity-based three-dimensional compass in the mouse brain

Head direction cells in the mammalian limbic system are thought to function as an allocentric neuronal compass. Although traditional views hold that the compass of ground-dwelling species is planar, Angelaki et al. 2019 show that head-direction cells in the rodent
