  • Dorsal Hippocampal neurons provide an allocentric map of space1, characterized by three key properties. First, their firing is spatially selective1–3, termed a rate code. Second, as animals traverse through place fields, neurons sustain elevated firing rates for long periods, however this has received little attention. Third the theta-phase of spikes within this sustained activity varies with animal’s location, termed phase-precession or a temporal code4–10. The precise relationship between… CONTINUE READING
