In the actively foraging rat, hippocampal pyramidal cells have strong spatial correlates. Each "place cell" fires rapidly only when the rat enters a particular delimited portion of its environment, called the "place field" of that cell. Hippocampal pyramidal cells also exhibit spatial selectivity during a physiological state that occurs during sleep, termed "small irregular activity" (SIA), because of the appearance of the hippocampal EEG. It is not known whether rats determine their current… CONTINUE READING
