 Abstract: This chapter argues that advances in cognitive neuroscience provide valuable insights into the organization of spatial cognition. It considers a number of current controversies in spatial cognition, particularly, the existence of egocentric and allocentric representations. The chapter also examines distinct neural systems for specific types of spatial information and then describes head-direction cells, patterns of place cell firing, and the dorsal striatum and its location relative to local landmarks. Finally, the chapter investigates the neural bases of landmark and boundary processing in spatial memory.
