The hippocampal system is essential for memory, and over the past decade, significant research has revealed the importance of entorhinal cortex to this system. However, much of this work has been within the specific context of spatial memory. In my talk, I will instead discuss the role of entorhinal cortex in episodic memory, focusing on how time is encoded and what representation of nonspatial features may look like.

Albert earned his PhD in Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Technology in Science under Edvard and May-Britt Moser where he worked on the neural mechanisms of memory and spatial navigation.
