According to experimental evidence, spatial navigation
planning is likely to rely upon a distributed neural net-
work spanning limbic and cortical brain structures. This
network includes (i) the hippocampus, which mediates
robust spatial representations, and (ii) neocortical struc-
tures, such as the prefrontal cortex, which participate in
the elaboration of more abstract contextual descriptions
