Place Cells & Grid Cells

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2014 was awarded to John O’Keefe, May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain. As a researcher in the field of computational neuroscience on the hippocampus memory, I would like to express my sincere congraturations and deep gratitede to the prize winners and all colleagues in the related studies. Here we wouleg like to demonstrate some animation of the place cell and the grid cells given by our computational studies, all of which we construced for the sake of demonstration of our own computational models.  I hope these may help  understanding on the positioning system in the brain.
