Finding Places. The Search for the Brain's GPS

How are humans and animals able to navigate? And why are nearly all of our memories connected to places?

In 2003, brain scientists Edvard and May-Britt Moser made a sensational discovery at a lab in Trondheim, Norway, which changed everything we thought we knew about animals’ and people’s sense of direction.

Finding Places, The Search for the Brain's GPS follows these two Norwegian scientists on their journey from young students who didn’t know what they wanted to pursue in life to acclaimed researchers receiving the world’s most prestigious scientific award: The Nobel Prize in medicine.

This book gives a unique insight into their’ struggles, victories, and the creativity behind their ground-breaking research and tells the thrilling story about how May-Britt and Edvard Moser solved one of the biggest mysteries in science.
