A quantitative computational theory of the operation of the hippocampus as an episodic memory system is described. The CA3 system operates as a single attractor or autoassociation network to enable rapid, one-trial associations between any spatial location (place in rodents or spatial view in primates) and an object or reward and to provide for completion of the whole memory during recall from any part. The theory is extended to associations between time and object or reward to implement… Expand

TLDR
A quantitative computational theory of the operation of the hippocampus as an episodic memory system as well as tests of the theory including hippocampal subregion analyses and hippocampal NMDA receptor knockouts are described and support the theory. Expand

In this theory, the CA3 system operates as a single attractor or autoassociation network to enable rapid, one-trial, associations between any spatial location and an object or reward, and to provide for completion of the whole memory during recall from any part. Expand

Neuronal Ensemble Reactivation in the CA3 Hippocampal Region in Memory Formation due to Pattern Completion
TLDR
The major goal of this project is to determine if a partial cue that can evoke memory of the original event does lead to activation of the auto-associative neural network corresponding to the originalevent. Expand
Place Cell Rate Remapping by CA3 Recurrent Collaterals
TLDR
A neural network model of the CA3 with attractors for both position and discrete contexts found that for memories stored in overlapping neural ensembles within a single spatial map, position-dependent context attractors made transitions at different points along the morph sequence. Expand

Behaviorally emergent hippocampal place maps remain stable during memory recall
TLDR
The findings suggest that a subset of place cells is recruited by rule based spatial learning, actively reconfigured to represent task-relevant spatial relationships, and stabilized following successful learning and consolidation. Expand
1.31 – Computational Models of Hippocampal Functions☆
TLDR
This chapter describes a quantitative computational theory of hippocampal function, tests of predictions of the theory, and compares it to other theories, and finds that the concept that the CA1 recodes information from CA3 and sets up associatively learned backprojections to neocortex to allow subsequent retrieval of information to neoc cortex is consistent with findings on consolidation.

Associative Memory Model of Hippocampus CA3 Using Spike Response Neurons
TLDR
The computational model of hippocampus CA3 proposed by Jensen et al. is realized using the Spike Response Model (SRM) and the SRM-based network is able to demonstrate the same memory storage capability with added simplicity and flexibility. Expand

TLDR
Key hypotheses are that the CA3 pyramidal cells operate as a single autoassociation network to store new episodic information as it arrives via a number of specialized preprocessing stages from many different association areas of the cerebral cortex, and that the dentate granule cell/mossy fiber system is important particularly during learning to help to produce a new pattern of firing in theCA3 cells for each episode. Expand
A computational theory of hippocampal function, and empirical tests of the theory
TLDR
An up-to-date computational theory of hippocampal function and the predictions it makes about the different subregions (dentate gyrus, CA3 and CA1) are presented, and behavioral and electrophysiological data that address the functions of the hippocampus and particularly its subregion are examined. Expand
The CA3 subregion of the hippocampus is critical for episodic memory processing by means of relational encoding in rats.
TLDR
The data suggest that CA3 mediates episodic learning of arbitrary associations as tested in the 1-trial object- cued spatial location recall and spatial location-cued object recall tasks. Expand
The global record of memory in hippocampal neuronal activity
TLDR
Training rats to perform the same recognition memory task in several distinct locations in a rich spatial environment found that the activity of many hippocampal neurons was related consistently to perceptual, behavioural or cognitive events, regardless of the location where these events occurred, indicating that non-spatial events are fundamental elements of hippocampal representation. Expand
How Informative Are Spatial CA3 Representations Established by the Dentate Gyrus?
TLDR
This work estimates the amount of information DG can impart on a new CA3 pattern of spatial activity, and indicates that even when DG codes just for space, much of the information it passes on to CA3 acquires a non-spatial and episodic character, akin to that of a random number generator. Expand
Associations across time: the hippocampus as a temporary memory store
All recent memory theories of hippocampal function have incorporated the idea that the hippocampus is required to process items only of some qualitatively specifiahle kind, and is not required toExpand
Pattern separation, pattern completion, and new neuronal codes within a continuous CA3 map.
TLDR
CA3 cell ensembles may support the fast acquisition of detailed memories by providing a locally continuous, but globally orthogonal representation, which can rapidly provide a new neuronal index when information is encountered for the first time. Expand
Requirement for Hippocampal CA3 NMDA Receptors in Associative Memory Recall
TLDR
Results provide direct evidence for CA3 NMDA receptor involvement in associative memory recall by generating and analyzing a genetically engineered mouse strain in which the N-methyl-d-asparate (NMDA) receptor gene is ablated specifically in the CA3 pyramidal cells of adult mice. Expand
Computational constraints suggest the need for two distinct input systems to the hippocampal CA3 network
The CA3 network in the hippocampus may operate as an autoassociator, in which declarative memories, known to be dependent on hippocampal processing, could be stored, and subsequently retrieved, usingExpand
Path Integration and Cognitive Mapping in a Continuous Attractor Neural Network Model
TLDR
The model provides an explanation for a number of hitherto perplexing observations on hippocampal place fields, including doubling, vanishing, reshaping in distorted environments, acquiring directionality in a two-goal shuttling task, rapid formation in a novel environment, and slow rotation after disorientation.
