Grid cells, in entorhinal cortex, have been regarded as a rigid system, essentially memory-less and almost frozen, following their developmental maturation. Recent data suggest, however, that such rigidity may be an artifact of experimental studies carried out in standard laboratory conditions. For grid cells to represent spatial position in ecological conditions, they appear to require memory of familiar environments. I will discuss how the grid cell network may attain sufficient storage capacity, despite the lack, in contrast to the hippocampus, of dentate gyrus preprocessing.
