“Space and memory work very well together. You can see it when the system fails, such as the Alzheimer’s disease”
Edvard Moser is a Professor of Neuroscience, Director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim and the Deputy Director of the newly established Centre for Neural Computation at the same institution.
Moser is interested in how spatial location and spatial memory are computed in the brain. His work, conducted with May-Britt Moser (a long-term collaborator), includes the discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, which provides clues to a neural mechanism for the metric of spatial mapping. Subsequent to this discovery, Moser and his colleagues have identified additional space-representing cell types in the entorhinal cortex and are thus beginning to unravel how the neural microcircuit is organized.
Moser received his initial training at the University of Oslo under the supervision of Dr. Per Andersen. He worked in his Post-Doc research with Richard Morris and John O’Keefe in 1996, before he accepted a faculty position at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology the same year. In 2002 he became the Founding Director of the Centre for the Biology of Memory which would become the Kavli Institute in 2007.
Together with May-Britt Moser, he has received numerous awards, including the 2014 Nobel Prize in Medicine.
