Multisensory coding of angular head velocity in the retrosplenial cortex

Dr. Troy Margrie’s group from University College London published their new findings in Neuron. They recorded single units in freely moving mice with chronically implanted NeuroNexus probes (A1x32-Poly2-5mm-50s-177-CM32). They found that angular head velocity (AHV) cells in the retrosplenial cortex (RSP) may be used in path integration by updating the spatial map upon animal movement, and may increase the accuracy of self-motion perception.
