The hippocampus is crucial for episodic and spatial memory. In freely moving rodents, hippocampal pyramidal neurons show spatially selective firing when the animal passes through a neuron's 'place-field', and theta-band oscillation is continuously present during locomotion. Here we report the first hippocampal recordings from echolocating bats, mammals phylogenetically distant from rodents, which showed place cells very similar to those of rodents. High-frequency 'ripple' oscillations were also… Expand
Dynamics of hippocampal spatial representation in echolocating bats
TLDR
The results suggest that spatial representation in mammalian hippocampus can be very rapidly modulated by external sensory and behavioral events. Expand
3D Hippocampal Place Field Dynamics in Free-Flying Echolocating Bats
TLDR
Findings are presented, which demonstrate that the animal’s control over echolocation call rate (sensory sampling) influences place field tuning, and motivate future comparative research on hippocampal function in the context of natural sensory-guided behaviors. 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
Nonoscillatory Phase Coding and Synchronization in the Bat Hippocampal Formation
TLDR
It is reported that, surprisingly, bat hippocampal neurons do exhibit temporal coding similar to rodents, albeit without any continuous oscillations at the 1-20 Hz range, and this demonstrates an unexpected type of neural coding in the mammalian brain-nonoscillatory phase coding. Expand
Behaviourally modulated hippocampal theta oscillations in the ferret persist during both locomotion and immobility
TLDR
It is shown that theta oscillations occur during locomotion in both ferrets and rats, however during periods of immobility, theTA oscillations persisted in the ferret, contrasting starkly with the switch to large irregular activity (LIA) in the rat. Expand
Grid cells without theta oscillations in the entorhinal cortex of bats
TLDR
This work found grid cells in bat medial entorhinal cortex that shared remarkable similarities to rodent grid cells, and existed in the absence of continuous theta-band oscillations, and with almost no theta modulation of grid-cell spiking, which are essential prerequisites of the oscillatory interference models. Expand
Hippocampal theta oscillations are modulated by behaviour in the ferret but persist during both locomotion and immobility
TLDR
It is shown that theta oscillations occur during locomotion in both the ferret and rat, however during periods of immobility, theTA oscillations persisted in the ferrets, contrasting starkly with the switch to large irregular activity (LIA) in the rat. Expand
Theta-phase dependent neuronal coding during sequence learning in human single neurons
TLDR
Spikes for three consecutive items in the sequence were phase-locked at distinct phases of the theta oscillation, suggesting that encoding stimulus information at distinct oscillatory phases may play a role in maintaining sequential order in memory. Expand
Theta-Phase Dependent Neuronal Coding During Sequence Learning in Human Single Neurons
The ability to maintain a sequence of items in short-term memory (STM) is a fundamental cognitive function. In the rodent hippocampus, the representation of sequentially organized spatial locationsExpand
Theta-phase dependent neuronal coding during sequence learning in human single neurons
TLDR

TLDR
It is concluded that primates generate hippocampal theta activity homologous, but not identical, to that of rats. 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.

Sleep-dependent theta oscillations in the human hippocampus and neocortex.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the generation mechanisms of theta oscillations in humans might have evolved from tonic to phasic in hippocampus during REM sleep and extended from hippocampus to cortex, where they appear in certain wakefulness-related states. Expand
Phase relationship between hippocampal place units and the EEG theta rhythm
TLDR
The phase was highly correlated with spatial location and less well correlated with temporal aspects of behavior, such as the time after place field entry, and the characteristics of the phase shift constrain the models that define the construction of place fields. Expand
Hippocampal network patterns of activity in the mouse
TLDR
The electrical patterns in the behaving animal are investigated using multisite silicon probes and wire tetrodes and it is suggested that the main hippocampal network patterns are mediated by similar pathways and mechanisms in mouse and rat. Expand

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

Large‐scale parallel recordings are made use of to clarify and extend the finding that a cell's spike activity advances to earlier phases of the theta cycle as the rat passes through the cell's place field, and to show Granule cells of the fascia dentata are also modulated by theta. Expand

The findings demonstrate the existence of movement‐related theta oscillations in human hippocampus, and suggest that both cortical and hippocampal oscillations play a role in attention and sensorimotor integration. Expand
