Ensemble recordings of 73 to 148 rat hippocampal neurons were used to predict accurately the animals' movement through their environment, which confirms that the hippocampus transmits an ensemble code for location. In a novel space, the ensemble code was initially less robust but improved rapidly with exploration. During this period, the activity of many inhibitory cells was suppressed, which suggests that new spatial information creates conditions in the hippocampal circuitry that are… Expand

Topics from this paper

The structure of hippocampal CA1 interactions optimizes spatial coding across experience
TLDR
This work reveals highly structured cell-to-cell interactions whose statistics depend on familiar vs. novel environment and suggests that the efficient coding hypothesis is not applicable only to individual neuron properties in the sensory periphery, but also to neural interactions in the central brain. Expand
Directing Neural Representations of Space
The study of the neurobiology of spatial navigation provides a neural model for a complex form of learning that is likely to be highly conserved across evolution. Single cell recordings from rats asExpand
A Model of Spatial Map Formation in the Hippocampus of the Rat
TLDR
Using experimental facts about long-term potentiation (LTP) and hippocampal place cells, this model demonstrates how behaviorally generated modifications of synaptic strengths can be read out to affect subsequent behavior and suggests a way that navigational maps can be constructed from experimental recordings of hippocampus. Expand
Neural ensemble interactions underlying memory consolidation
Episodic memory formation and spatial navigation are core functions of the hippocampus. Embedded in a path integration based Expand
A Distributed Neural Code in the Dentate Gyrus and in CA1
TLDR
This analysis indicates that population methods rather than classical analyses based on single-cell response properties may more accurately characterize the neural code in the hippocampus. Expand
Hippocampal place cells and the generation of a temporal code
TLDR
A minimal biophysical model is presented for the generation of the phase information from a combination of two inputs: a short duration spatial trigger and the animal's running speed, and a transient phase code for location. Expand

TLDR
The activity of hippocampal CA1 neurons of male mice was tracked during repeated performances of a spatial task in a virtual reality environment and the overlap rate of the active place-cell population was found to be time dependent but independent of the number of tasks within a fixed time. Expand
The Hippocampal Ensemble Code for Spatial Navigation and Episodic Memory.
TLDR
It is argued that the sequential activity pattern of hippocampal place cells is capable of encoding not only future trajectory but also future events that occur along space and time, and can be reactivated in a temporally compressed fashion while the animal briefly pauses. Expand
Place cells, spatial maps and the population code for memory
TLDR
This work has laid out the contours of an attractor-based hippocampal population code for memory in recurrent circuits of the hippocampus based on inputs from a topographically organized, path-integration-dependent spatial map that lies upstream in the medial entorhinal cortex. Expand
Subfield variations in hippocampal processing--components of a spatial navigation system
TLDR
Simulation shows that differences in the behaviour of place cells in the hippocampus can be explained by a combination of known physiological features of the hippocampus and proposed variations in the rate of synaptic plasticity and connection strength between different information pathways. Expand

TLDR
Rats were pretrained to perform an operant task in a straight-line shuttle box for food reward and then transferred to a T-maze (requiring similar behavior), showing specific spatial firing immediately in 10 of 12 cases. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary observations on the behaviour of hippocampusal units in the freely moving rat provide support for this theory of hippocampal function. Expand
Dependence of cortical plasticity on correlated activity of single neurons and on behavioral context.
TLDR
The results indicate that changes in the temporal contingency between neurons are often necessary, but not sufficient, for cortical plasticity in the adult monkey: behavioral relevance is required. Expand
Spatial correlates of hippocampal unit activity
TLDR
Electrical activity of units in the hippocampus was recorded from freely behaving rats as they explored a spatial maze to provide strong support for the hypothesis that the hippocampus is involved in the processing of spatial information. Expand
Comparison of spatial and temporal characteristics of neuronal activity in sequential stages of hippocampal processing.
TLDR
A comparison of spatial and temporal discharge characteristics among entorhinal cortex, CA3 and CA1, and the subiculum suggests that the sparse coding used within the hippocampus itself represents a mechanism for increasing the storage capacity of a network whose function is to form associations rapidly.

Simultaneous, multisite recordings revealed temporal and spatial coherence of neuronal activity during population oscillations in CA1 hippocampal region and synchronous output of cooperating CA1 pyramidal cells may serve to induce synaptic enhancement in target structures of the hippocampus. Expand

Results provide direct, neural evidence for the mental rotation hypothesis and indicate that the neuronal population vector is a useful tool for "reading out" and identifying cognitive operations of neuronal ensembles. Expand
