How the brain’s spatial systems organize their representation of 3D space?

The brain’s spatial map is supported by place cells, encoding current location, and grid cells, which report horizontal distance traveled by producing evenly sized and spaced foci of activity (firing fields) that tile the environment surface. Casalia et al. 2019 …
