Single-electrode depth profiles of the hippocampal EEG were made in urethane-anesthetized rats and rats trained in an alternating running/drinking task. Current source density (CSD) was computed from the voltage as a function of depth. A problem inherent to AC-coupled profiles was eliminated by incorporating sustained potential components of the EEG. 'AC' profiles force phasic current sinks to alternate with current sources at each lamina, changing the magnitude and even the sign of the… Expand
Determining the True Polarity and Amplitude of Synaptic Currents Underlying Gamma Oscillations of Local Field Potentials
TLDR
A combined analytical/experimental approach that is suitable to study laminated structures is devised and only Glutamate but not GABA blockers abolished Schaffer LFPs when applied to the active but not passive subcellular domains of pyramidal cells. Expand
Pitfalls in the dipolar model for the neocortical EEG sources.
TLDR
The primary current sources of the EEG in the neocortex of rodents are not precisely represented by a single equivalent dipole and that the existence of monopolar components must be also considered at the mesoscopic level. Expand
Hippocampal network patterns of activity in the mouse
TLDR
The electrical patterns in the behaving animal are investigated using multisite silicon probes and wire tetrodes and it is suggested that the main hippocampal network patterns are mediated by similar pathways and mechanisms in mouse and rat. Expand
Theta oscillations in somata and dendrites of hippocampal pyramidal cells in vivo: Activity‐dependent phase‐precession of action potentials
TLDR
Data indicate that distal dendritic depolarization of the pyramidal cell by the entorhinal input during theta overlaps in time with somatic hyperpolarization, and hypothesize that the competition between the out‐of‐phase theta oscillation in the soma and dendrite is responsible for the advancement of spike discharges observed in the behaving animal. Expand
Minor contribution of principal excitatory pathways to hippocampal LFPs in the anesthetized rat: a combined independent component and current source density study.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis on a sparse population code used by excitatory populations in the entorhino-hippocampal system, and validate the separation of LFP-generators as a powerful tool to explore the computational function of neuronal circuits in real time. Expand
Intrinsic theta-frequency membrane potential oscillations in hippocampal CA1 interneurons of stratum lacunosum-moleculare.
TLDR
Intrinsic membrane potential oscillations in LM cells of the CA1 region thus involve an interplay between inward Na+ currents and outward K+ currents sensitive to Ba2+ and 4-AP, and may participate in rhythmic inhibition and synchronization of pyramidal neurons during theta activity in vivo. Expand
Analysis of field potentials evoked in CA1 by angular bundle stimulation in the rat
TLDR
Data indicate that the early positive-to-negative phase of the waveform in CA1 evoked by the AB test stimulus reflects events in the DG and not direct activation of CA1 by entorhinal cortical afferents. Expand
Hippocampal Slow Oscillation: A Novel EEG State and Its Coordination with Ongoing Neocortical Activity
TLDR
A novel state present during deactivated stages of sleep and anesthesia that is characterized by a prominent large-amplitude and slow frequency (≤1 Hz) rhythm is described, called the hippocampal slow oscillation (SO), which may present a favorable milieu for synchronization-dependent synaptic plasticity within and between hippocampal and neocortical ensembles. Expand
Hippocampal theta activity following selective lesion of the septal cholinergic systeM
TLDR
Findings indicate that the integrity of the septohippocampal GABAergic projection is sufficient to maintain some hippocampal theta activity, and hypothesize that cholinergic neurons serve to increase the population phase-locking of septal cells and thereby regulate the magnitude of hippocampalTheta.

TLDR
In the behaving rat, theta rhythm was dominant during walking and rapid-eye-movement sleep, while irregular slow activity predominated during immobility and slow-wave sleep, and single cell recordings in vitro suggested that intrinsic voltage-dependent membrane potential oscillations modulate the response to a theta-frequency driving.

Current source density of sustained potential shifts associated with electrographic seizures and with spreading depression in rat hippocampus
TLDR
The membrane currents responsible for the sustained potential shifts associated with electrographic seizures and with spreading depression in hippocampus were studied in the anesthetized rat, concluding that seizures are associated with an inward current in neuron cell bodies, probably flowing through membrane channels of as yet no know physiological function. Expand
Laminar distribution of hippocampal rhythmic slow activity (RSA) in the behaving rat: Current-source density analysis, effects of urethane and atropine
TLDR
It is suggested that field RSA is produced by several rhythmical dipoles along the somadendritic surface of pyramidal cells and granule cells and the spatiotemporal relations of the individual dipoles determine the actually observed extracellular RSA. Expand
Cellular bases of hippocampal EEG in the behaving rat
TLDR
Movement-related RSA was correlated with a decrease in firing rate of pyramidal cells and an increase in the firing of both interneurons and granule cells, and Gradual phase-shifts of RSA were observed both in CA1 and the dentate gyrus. Expand
Hippocampal theta in rats under urethane: generators and phase relations.
TLDR
Anatomical, phase and other datal led to consideration of a possible retrohippocampal role in supplementing the well-known pacemaker in the medial septum in urethane-anesthetized rats. Expand

TLDR
In rabbits anesthetized with urethane, cortical impedance was measured by applying nonstimulating sinusoidal currents through a 20-μ platinum electrode and showed that hemispherical symmetry was true out to 1.3 mm from the current source. Expand
Arousal-related sustained potentials in neocortex and hippocampus of rats.

This chapter discusses arousal-related sustained potentials in neocortex and hippocampus of rats and reports that negative sustained potential shifts (SPs) develop over the neocortex or in the hypothalamus during arousal. Expand
Generators and topography of hippocampal Theta (RSA) in the anaesthetized and freely moving rat
TLDR
Spontaneous and hypothalamically induced hippocampal rhythmical slow activity (RSA or theta) was studied acutely in rats anaesthetized with urethane or immobilized with D-tubocurarine andavioural observations showed that the two generators were related systematically to concurrent motor behaviour.

TLDR
It is suggested that rhythmical slow activity in the hippocampus and diencephalon are the electrical sign of activity in a forebrain mechanism which organizes or initiates higher (voluntary) motor acts. Expand
Two populations of rhythmically bursting neurons in rat medial septum are revealed by atropine.
TLDR
Evaluating the mechanism(s) of action of systemic antimuscarinic drugs in eliminating the theta rhythm in rats suggests that the loss of rhythmic activity in the group of atropine-sensitive septal cells is sufficient for the elimination of the theTA rhythm. Expand
Voltage-clamp analysis of muscarinic excitation in hippocampal neurons
TLDR
It is suggested that activation of cholinergic septal inputs to the hippocampus facilitates repetitive firing of pyramidal cells by turning off the M-conductance, without much change in the resting potential of the cell. Expand
