The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to the discoveries of neurons that enable navigation and spatial memory capacity: grid cells and place cells.

Which of the following is FALSE?


Grid cells are found in the lateral entorhinal cortex, and they fire at locations that form a hexagonal pattern.


The spacing between firing locations in the grid cell hexagons increases from dorsal to ventral.


Grid cells send entorhinal spatial input to place cells.


Place cells are a type of hippocampal neurons that fire at a specific location in space.
