In the 2014 Sharp Lecture, May-Britt Moser of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology described her work on “grid cells,” which she co-discovered with husband Edvard Moser in 2005. The activity of these cells suggests that the brain maps 2D space onto a grid from which the animal’s location can be computed.
