The Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and Centre for the Biology of Memory is a neuroscience research center at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The Kavli Institute coexists with the Centre for the Biology of Memory (CBM) but the scope of the Institute is broader and more long-term. The center is known for the discovery of grid cells.

The scientific goal of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience is to advance our understanding of neural circuits and systems. By focusing on spatial representation and memory, the investigators hope to uncover general principles of neural network computation in the mammalian cortex.
