  • The hippocampal theta rhythm (rhythmical slow activity, RSA) is one of the most thoroughly studied EEG phenomena. Much of this experimental interest has been stimulated by suggestions that the mnemonic functions of the hippocampus may depend upon theta-related neuronal activity. Inputs from the medial septal nuclei to the hippocampus were shown to be essential for the theta rhythm in the 1950s, but the role of these basal forebrain projections has not been clearly defined. Four models of the… CONTINUE READING
