A lot of my research involves the hippocampus, part of the brain that is important for forming new memories. This video is part of a work in progress explaining the vital part the hippocampus plays in our memory for places, for knowing where we are and for finding our way around.
I made the video using an MRI scan of my own brain. The outer surface and shape of the hippocampus were extracted using a magnificent program called freesurfer. The images are made using a 3D animation package called Blender
