A Spin Glass Model of Path Integration in Rat Medial Entorhinal Cortex
Electrophysiological recording studies in the dorsocaudal region of medial entorhinal cortex (dMEC) of the rat reveal cells whose spatial firing fields show a remarkably regular hexagonal gridExpand

Hippocampal Replay Is Not a Simple Function of Experience
Replay of behavioral sequences in the hippocampus during sharp wave ripple complexes (SWRs) provides a potential mechanism for memory consolidation and the learning of knowledge structures. CurrentExpand

Cognitive maps beyond the hippocampus
We present a conceptual framework for the role of the hippocampus and its afferent and efferent structures in rodent navigation. Our proposal is compatible with the behavioral, neurophysiological,Expand

Segmentation of spatial experience by hippocampal theta sequences
The encoding and storage of experience by the hippocampus is essential for the formation of episodic memories and the transformation of individual experiences into semantic structures such as mapsExpand

Representation and Timing in Theories of the Dopamine System
TLDR
We propose a theory of the dopaminergic system that incorporates two features not originally considered in theories of the dopamine response: partial observability (a distinction between the animal's sensory experience and the true underlying state of the world) and semi-Markov dynamics (an explicit account of variation in the intervals between events).

The Role of the Hippocampus in Solving the Morris Water Maze
TLDR
We suggest that the hippocampus plays two roles that allow rodents to solve the hidden-platform water maze: self-localization and route replay. Expand

A Clash of Intuitions: The Current State of Nonmonotonic Multiple Inheritance Systems
TLDR
In The Mathematics of Inheritance Systems, or TMOIS, Touretzky described two problems these systems cannot handle: reasoning in the presence of true but redundant assertions, and coping with ambiguity. Expand

Bayesian theories of conditioning in a changing world
The recent flowering of Bayesian approaches invites the re-examination of classic issues in behavior, even in areas as venerable as Pavlovian conditioning. A statistical account can offer a new,Expand
