Intracranial EEG reveals the signature of specific spatial locations


Similar activity patterns are observed during learning and remembering of specific spatial locations. Electrodes where activity levels are high during learning (warm colours) also show high activity levels during retrieval; electrodes with low activity levels during learning (cold colours) show low activity levels during retrieval.
