Hippocampal theta activity results from activation in the ascending synchronizing system. It occurs during sensory/signal processing prior to and coincident with voluntary movements in mammals. The experiments summarized here suggest that it is involved in the organization of motor behaviour. (1) Procaine (a local anaesthetic) infused into the medial septum (MS) abolishes hippocampal theta activity and running behaviour elicited by electrical posterior hypothalamic (PH) stimulation.
