CDB Scientists discover sense of direction is innate

18 June 2010

Prof John O'Keefe and researchers from the UCL Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology have today published in the journal Science, the results of a new study.

This reveals that the brain’s ways of representing sense of place and orientation appear extremely early in the animal’s development – within two weeks of being born - and seemingly independently of any experience of the world.
