Spatial Coding in Rat's Postrhinal Cortex (image) Dartmouth College Share Print E-Mail Caption Spatial coding in rat's postrhinal cortex. Neurons in the rat postrhinal cortex encode the egocentric bearing and distance of the geometric center of the local environment during free foraging, as well as the animal's head direction in allocentric coordinates.
