His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Hippocampus, Place cell, Hippocampal formation and Spatial view cells. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Electrophysiology, Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology is frequently linked to work in Communication channel, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Hippocampus study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Brain mapping.
His Place cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stimulus, Fascia dentata, Geometry and Head direction cells. His Hippocampal formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Synaptic fatigue, Electroencephalography, Memoria, Sensory Receptor Cells and Episodic memory. His study on Spatial view cells also encompasses disciplines like
Neuroscience, Hippocampal formation, Hippocampus, Place cell and Cognitive map are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Head direction cells as well. His Hippocampal formation study also includes
His Hippocampus research incorporates themes from Recognition memory and Electroencephalography. His studies in Place cell integrate themes in fields like Spatial view cells, Representation, Artificial neural network and Set. His Cognitive map study is related to the wider topic of Cognition.
His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Hippocampal formation, Hippocampus, Path integration and Geometry. His research on Neuroscience frequently links to adjacent areas such as Eye tracking. John O'Keefe is interested in Place cell, which is a branch of Hippocampal formation.
His work carried out in the field of Place cell brings together such families of science as Motion perception, Sensory cue and Orientation. His study in Hippocampus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sensory system, Information processing, Cognitive science, Neuroimaging and Cognitive map. His studies deal with areas such as Class and Head direction cells as well as Path integration.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Hippocampal formation, Path integration, Neuroscience, Place cell and Hippocampus. His research investigates the connection between Hippocampal formation and topics such as Novelty that intersect with problems in Machine learning, Biological system and Grid. John O'Keefe mostly deals with Spatial cognition in his studies of Neuroscience.
His Place cell research includes elements of Local field potential and Artificial intelligence. His work deals with themes such as Arousal, Boundary and Electroencephalography, which intersect with Hippocampus. His Boundary cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cognition, Neural coding and Head direction cells.
