Navigation in the Brain Joins RIN Groups
The RIN has developed a new Special Interest Group, focusing on 'Cognition and Navigation' - or CogNav for short.
The RIN's interest in CogNav, like the world's, has been growing for some time, and the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine went to CogNav researchers John O'Keefe and May-Britt and Evard Moser, for their discoveries of cells in the brain that constitute a navigation system.
Navigation News magazine has run several feature articles on the subject of CogNav, some of the most popular of which have been written by Professor Kate Jeffery of University College London. So we're delighted to announce that Kate will be chairing our CogNav group.
Plans are already been developed for a one-day CogNav event in 2017. Watch this space for more details.
