Head-direction cells recorded from the postsubiculum in freely moving rats. II. Effects of environmental manipulations
The discharge characteristics of postsubicular head-direction cells in a fixed environment were described in the previous paper (Taube et al., 1990). This paper reports changes in the firingExpand

Firing Properties of Rat Lateral Mammillary Single Units: Head Direction, Head Pitch, and Angular Head Velocity
Many neurons in the rat anterodorsal thalamus (ADN) and postsubiculum (PoS) fire selectively when the rat points its head in a specific direction in the horizontal plane, independent of the animal’sExpand

Interaction between the Postsubiculum and Anterior Thalamus in the Generation of Head Direction Cell Activity
Previous research has identified neurons in the postsubiculum (PoS) and anterior dorsal thalamic nucleus (AD) of the rat that discharge as a function of the animal’s head direction. In addition,Expand

Hippocampal spatial representations require vestibular input
The hippocampal formation is essential for forming declarative representations of the relationships among multiple stimuli. The rodent hippocampal formation, including the entorhinal cortex andExpand

Persistent neural activity in head direction cells.
Many neurons throughout the rat limbic system discharge in relation to the animal's directional heading with respect to its environment. These so-called head direction (HD) cells exhibitExpand

On the directional firing properties of hippocampal place cells
Using a two-spot tracking system that allowed measurements of the direction of a rat's head in the environment as well as the position of the rat's head, we investigated whether hippocampal placeExpand
