The discovery of grid cells blew my mind, and continues to be a favorite of students in my Learning and Memory seminar.

Thanks to Bill for getting us all to think about this.  I can't wait to see the complete list.

What a great question, Bill! BTW, it sounds like a nice way to put together
the perfect reading list for a seminar class. Can I suggest either that the
replies go to the whole list or that Bill posts the results?

Maybe I'm guilty of some kind of recency effect with this suggestion since
I just used it in class but if they have some interest in plasticity and
behavior I'd have to suggest von Melchner, Pallas, & Sur (2000):


It was preceded by a companion paper by Sharma, Angelucci, & Sur (2000)

I suppose if you're going to publish in Nature you might as well do it in
