    Spatial orientation is a universal cognitive function, crucial for any species that locomotes in an environment, needs to find its way to a target or food, and is able to go back to its starting point. How do we know where we are and where we are going? A major goal of Neuroscience is to decipher how behaviorally relevant cognitive functions emerge from underlying neuronal circuits. A Spatial Model for Cognitive Neuroscience Neil Burgess1,* with those of other types of spatial cell, most notably head direction cells, help to define ‘‘a positioning system in the constructs, and the neural mechanisms of learning, representation, and memory.

Chapter 3 in Head Direction Cells and the Neural Mechanisms of Spatial Orientation. Edited by S. I. Wiener and J. S. Taube. MIT Press, , pp. 45– We present a model for the self-organized formation of place cells, head-direction cells, and spatial-view cells in the hippocampal formation based on unsupervised learning on quasi-natural visual stimuli. The model comprises a hierarchy of Slow Feature Analysis (SFA) nodes, which were recently shown to reproduce many properties of complex cells in the early visual system.

The book begins by presenting head direction cell properties and an anatomical framework of the head direction system. It then looks at the types of sensory and motor information that control head direction cell firing, covering topics including the integration of diverse signals; the relationship between head direction cell activity and an animal's spatial behavior; and spatial and directional orientation.

Head direction (HD) cells are neurons found in a number of brain regions that increase their firing rates above baseline levels only when the animal's head points in a specific direction. They have been reported in rats, monkeys, mice, chinchillas and bats, but are thought to be common to all mammals, perhaps all vertebrates and perhaps even some invertebrates, and to underlie the "sense of.

MIT Press: Cambridge, MA. Butler WN, Smith KS, van der Meer MAA, Taube JS () The head direction signal plays a functional role as a neural compass during navigation. For survival many animals have evolved neural mechanisms permitting to localize resources, protection and conspecifics in changing environments.

During exploration, information is acquired about cues, cue gradients, landmarks, and appropriate movements for dead reckoning, wayfinding, piloting and other types of spatial navigation.At least five cell types contributing to spatial orientation have been identified, including place cells, grid cells, head direction cells, border cells, and speed cells.
