TED Talk Explains How Your Brain Tells You Where You Are

Do you ever have trouble remembering where you parked your car? This TED talk, by neuroscientist Neil Burgess, explains how the brain’s electrical activity guides us through everyday places, including parking lots.

The nine-minute talk is a bit technical, but if you’re interested in the nitty gritty of how we manage to know where we are and get where we’re going, this is a good introduction.
