The activity of hippocampal cell assemblies is considered to function as the neural substrate for a cognitive map in various animal species. The firing rate of hippocampal place cells increases when an individual animal reaches a specific location in an environment. Although cumulative views on place cells have been revealed by studies using rodents under free-behavior conditions, few studies have addressed the spatial representation provided by hippocampal neurons in primates. Moreover… Expand
Data on the activity of place cells in the hippocampal CA1 subfield of a monkey performing a shuttling task
TLDR
A movement directional activity of a place cell in two-dimensional space is shown as an example of data utilization and can be used by other researchers to obtain new insights into place cells, such as functional differences between animal species. Expand
Spatial encoding in primate hippocampus during free navigation
TLDR
It is suggested that the relationship between place-cell activity and θ oscillations in primate hippocampus during free navigation differs substantially from rodents and paint an intriguing comparative picture regarding the neural basis of spatial navigation across mammals. Expand
Spatial modulation of hippocampal activity in freely moving macaques
TLDR
It is revealed that the macaque hippocampal formation represents three-dimensional space using a multiplexed code, with head orientation and eye movement properties dominating over simple place and grid coding during free exploration. Expand
Spatial modulation of hippocampal activity in freely moving macaques
TLDR
It is revealed that the macaque hippocampal formation represents three-dimensional (3D) space using a multiplexed code, with head orientation and eye movement properties being dominant during free exploration. Expand
Spatial representations in macaque hippocampal formation
TLDR
These findings reveal that the macaque hippocampal formation represents space using a multiplexed code, with heading properties dominating over simple place coding during free behavior. Expand
Neural Representation of Overlapping Path Segments and Reward Acquisitions in the Monkey Hippocampus
TLDR
The present results provide neurophysiological evidence of disambiguation in the monkey hippocampus, consistent with a hippocampal role in episodic memory, and support a recent computational model of “neural differentiation,” in which overlapping items are better represented by repeated retrieval with competitive learning.

The Reach Cage environment for wireless neural recordings during structured goal-directed behavior of unrestrained monkeys
TLDR
The Reach Cage and a versatile visuo-haptic interaction system (MaCaQuE) are presented and it is demonstrated that repeated movements show small enough trial-to-trial variation to allow grouping of data for sufficient statistical power, and single neuron activity is selective for different reach movements.

TLDR
A new approach to coordinate transform learning in the brain is proposed, in which the traditional gain modulation is complemented by temporal trace rule competitive network learning. Expand
Wireless recording from unrestrained monkeys reveals motor goal encoding beyond immediate reach in frontoparietal cortex
TLDR
The Reach Cage allows systems-level sensorimotor neuroscience studies with full-body movements in a configurable 3D spatial setting with unrestrained monkeys and concludes that the primate frontoparietal network encodes reach goals beyond immediate reach during movement planning. Expand

Detecting location-specific neuronal firing rate increases in the hippocampus of freely-moving monkeys
TLDR
During free movement in three dimensions, primate hippocampal complex-spike cells do generate high-frequency, location-specific action potential volleys, since these cells are components of the medial temporal lobe memory system and their uncovered firing pattern may well be involved in the formation of declarative memories on places. Expand
Cellular networks underlying human spatial navigation
TLDR
Evidence is presented for a neural code of human spatial navigation based on cells that respond at specific spatial locations and cells thatrespond to views of landmarks that are present primarily in the hippocampus and the parahippocampal region. Expand
Neural Activity in Human Hippocampal Formation Reveals the Spatial Context of Retrieved Memories
TLDR
Recording from neurosurgical patients playing a virtual reality memory game found that the recall of events was indeed associated with reinstatement of the place-firing of neurons activated as the subjects navigated through the environment and place-responsive cell activity was reinstated during episodic memory retrieval. Expand
Encoding of Head Direction by Hippocampal Place Cells in Bats
TLDR
Surprisingly, some hippocampal neurons preserved their head direction tuning even outside the neuron's place field, suggesting that “spontaneous” extra-field spikes are not noise, but in fact carry head-direction information. Expand
Spatial- and Task-Dependent Neuronal Responses during Real and Virtual Translocation in the Monkey Hippocampal Formation
TLDR
The results suggest that theHF and PH are crucial in allocentric information processing and, moreover, that the HF can encode different reference frames that are context or task-dependent, which may be the neural basis of episodic memory. Expand
The contributions of position, direction, and velocity to single unit activity in the hippocampus of freely-moving rats
TLDR
The pronounced directional selectivity of CS cells, at least in the present environment, suggests that they fire in response to complex, but specific, stimulus features in the extramaze world rather than to absolute place in a non-egocentric space. Expand
Entorhinal fast-spiking speed cells project to the hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that a large proportion of entorhinal speed cells are fast-spiking with properties similar to those of GABAergic interneurons and that outputs from a subset of these cells, particularly the parvalbumin-expressing subset, form a component of the medial entorHinal input to the hippocampus. Expand
Place‐related neuronal activity in the monkey parahippocampal gyrus and hippocampal formation during virtual navigation
TLDR
The results suggest the complementary roles of HF (allocentric representation of landmarks) and PH (representation of the spatial layout of landmarks') in the recognition of a location during navigation in primates. Expand
Role of active movement in place‐specific firing of hippocampal neurons
TLDR
Results show that active movement is a critical factor in determining place‐specific firing of hippocampal neurons, and could explain why passive displacement is not an effective way of acquiring spatial knowledge for subsequent active navigation in an unfamiliar environment. Expand
Development of the Hippocampal Cognitive Map in Preweanling Rats
TLDR
The results demonstrate the presence of three neuronal representations of space before extensive experience and show how they develop with age, providing experimental support for Kant's 200-year-old concept of space as an a priori faculty of the mind. Expand
