Rita Levi-Montalcini Lecture 2017

On 19 April 2017 the Rita Levi-Montalcini Lecture was delivered by Edvard Moser (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway), Nobel Laureate for the discovery of gird cells, studies that contributed to the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the GPS that is present in our brain. Through a system of spatial coordinates, this mechanism allows us to move in our environment. The Lecture entitled “Grid cells and the brain’s map of space” was followed by an International Workshop on “Navigation”, in particular on the brain mechanisms that animal species use for orientation, navigation and to create space maps that are useful for their survival.
