Information from the outside world is processed and integrated by several areas of the brain's cortex. The parahippocampal cortext consists of various regions which together form the input and output structure of the hippocampus. This area and the lateral entorhinal cortex form a gate between the (sub)cortex and hippocampus and are involved in memory, object information, attention and motivation processing. Janske Willems investigates how neuronal activity is processed by this network.
