  • Hippocampal neurons show selectivity with respectto visual cues in primates, including humans, butthis has never been found in rodents. To addressthis long-standing discrepancy, we measured hip-pocampal activity from rodents during real-worldrandom foraging. Surprisingly, 25% of neuronsexhibited significant directional modulation withrespect to visual cues. To dissociate the contribu-tions of visual and vestibular cues, we made similarmeasurements in virtual reality, in which only visualcues… CONTINUE READING
