The three-dimensional organization of the hippocampal formation: A review of anatomical data
It is concluded that it is heuristically most reasonable to consider the hippocampal formation as a three-dimensional cortical region with important information processing taking place in both the transverse and long axes.
Conjunctive Representation of Position, Direction, and Velocity in Entorhinal Cortex
The conjunction of positional, directional, and translational information in a single MEC cell type may enable grid coordinates to be updated during self-motion–based navigation.

Together, anatomical studies and electrophysiological recordings in rodents suggest a model in which functional long-axis gradients are superimposed on discrete functional domains, which provides a potential framework to explain and test the multiple functions ascribed to the hippocampus.
Functional organization of the extrinsic and intrinsic circuitry of the parahippocampal region
Place Cells and Place Recognition Maintained by Direct Entorhinal-Hippocampal Circuitry
The results suggest that the hippocampus contains two functionally separable memory circuits: the direct entorhinal-CA1 system is sufficient for recollection-based recognition memory, but recall depends on intact CA3- CA1 connectivity.
The anatomy of memory: an interactive overview of the parahippocampal–hippocampal network
An interactive diagram is developed with the aim to display all of the currently known anatomical connections of the rat parahippocampal–hipp hippocampal network and discuss the functional implications of some relatively underexposed connections.
Development of the Spatial Representation System in the Rat
It is reported that a rudimentary map of space is already present when 2½-week-old rat pups explore an open environment outside the nest for the first time and provides experimental support for Kant's 200-year-old concept of space as an a priori faculty of the mind.
Schemas and Memory Consolidation
It is reported that systems consolidation can occur extremely quickly if an associative “schema” into which new information is incorporated has previously been created.

The terminal organization of the presubicular input to the medial entorhinal cortex indicates that the interactions between the deep and superficial entorHinal layers may be influenced by this input.
Finite Scale of Spatial Representation in the Hippocampus
The results suggest that the place-cell map includes the entire hippocampus and that environments are represented in the hippocampus at a topographically graded but finite continuum of scales.
