  • In this paper it is argued that theta-range hippocampal EEG activity, and in particular the specific frequency at which it occurs, is critical to hippocampal function. Results of the reviewed studies suggest that in particular circumstances (in the urethane anaesthetized animal and possibly during particular behavioral states), the frequency of hippocampal theta is primarily determined in the supramammillary nucleus (SuM). Rhythmic theta-frequency neuronal activity in the SuM is relayed to, and… CONTINUE READING
