Prof. Dr. Christian Doeller is currently Director of the Department of Psychology at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany and Vice President of the Max Planck Society. He holds Honorary Professorships at Leipzig University and at the Technical University Dresden, Germany. He is also Adjunct Professor of Medicine (Neuroscience) at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, NTNU – Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. After finishing his PhD with Prof. Axel Mecklinger in Saarbrücken, he worked for several years as a Research Fellow and a Senior Research Fellow at University College London, UK with Prof Neil Burgess at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and the Institute of Neurology and in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (FIL) and Prof. John O’Keefe‘s electrophysiology group at the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology. After working as Principal Investigator at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands he has been Director of The Egil and Pauline Braathen and Fred Kavli Centre for Cortical Microcircuits at the Kavli Institute (Directors May-Britt and Edvard Moser) in affiliation with St Olavs University Hospital in Trondheim. Prof. Doeller is grantee of an ERC starting (2010) and consolidator (2016) grant. On the lecture: The fundamental question in cognitive neuroscience—what are the key coding principles of the brain enabling human thinking—still remains largely unanswered. Evidence from neurophysiology suggests that place and grid cells in the hippocampal-entorhinal system provide an internal spatial map, the brain’s SatNav—the most intriguing neuronal coding scheme outside the sensory system. Our framework is concerned with the key idea that this navigation system in the brain—potentially as a result of evolution—provides the blueprint for a neural metric underlying human cognition. Specifically, we propose that the brain maps experience in so-called ‘cognitive spaces’. In this talk, I will give an overview of our theoretical framework and experimental approach and will present show-case examples from our fMRI, MEG and virtual reality experiments identifying cognitive coding mechanisms in the hippocampal-entorhinal system and beyond
