Miller Lab graduate student Simon Kornblith publishes a paper in Neuron from work in his old lab.  By combining FMRI with electrode recording and stimulation, they found an area in the occipitotemporal cortex that has many scene-selective neurons, the lateral place patch (LPP).  By stimulating it, they discover connections to several other cortical areas, including a medial place patch (MPP) in the parahippocampal gyrus.  Elegant and important work, Simon, congratulations!  Now, get back to work. 🙂
