    Thomas Wolbers
    Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 9JZ, UK
    Trends Cogn Sci 14:138-46. 2010
    ..Together, the findings converge into an emerging model of how different factors interact to produce individual patterns of navigational performance...

    Thomas Wolbers
    Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems and Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
    Neuroimage 56:681-7. 2011
    ..As such, this area, which appears consistent with the hMT+ complex in the sighted, provides crucial information for the generation of a veridical percept of moving non-visual stimuli...
  3. pmc Modality-independent coding of spatial layout in the human brain
    Thomas Wolbers
    Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH8 9JZ, UK
    Curr Biol 21:984-9. 2011
    ..Taken together, these findings establish the PPA/RSC network as critical in modality-independent spatial computations and provide important evidence for a theory of high-level abstract spatial information processing in the human brain...
  4. doi request reprint Ageing effects on path integration and landmark navigation
    Mathew A Harris
    Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    Hippocampus 22:1770-80. 2012
    ..Our findings begin to explain the mechanisms underlying age differences in path integration, and thus contribute to an understanding of the substantial decline in navigation abilities observed in ageing...

    Neurobiol Aging 35:1095-102. 2014
    ..We conclude that the large age difference in performance at the shortcutting task demonstrates for the first time, how strategy switching deficits can have a severe impact on navigation in aging. ..

    Mathew A Harris
    Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems, University of Edinburgh Edinburgh, UK Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, University of Edinburgh Edinburgh, UK
    Front Aging Neurosci 4:29. 2012
    ..We argue that this specific "switch-to-place" deficit could account for apparent impairments in both navigational strategy switching and allocentric processing and contributes more generally to age-related decline in navigation...
