The Discovery of Grid Cells

Brain researchers May-Britt Moser and Edvard Moser at NTNU's Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience receive this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine together with John O'Keefe of University College London.

May-Britt and Edvard Moser discovered – in the medial entorhinal cortex, a region of the brain next to hippocampus – grid cells that provide the brain with an internal coordinate system essential for navigation.
