The hippocampal theta rhythm has been extensively studied in many subprimate mammals. Considering the technical difficulties involved in recording from freely moving animals during voluntary motion and REM sleep, it was thought that urethane anesthesia might be appropriate for initial studies of the primate hippocampal EEG. Three of three macaques and one of two squirrel monkeys showed clear rhythmic hippocampal EEG activity. One very old squirrel monkey (a 16-year-old female) showed no theta… Expand
The Effects of Medial Septal Modification on the Theta Rhythm of the Amygdala
TLDR
A within-subjects ANOV A was used to analyze preand post-infusion differences in theta power and results have strong implications for the respective roles of the cholinergic and GABAergic pathways in amygdala theta modulation. Expand
Frontal-midline theta from the perspective of hippocampal “theta”
TLDR
The hippocampal "theta rhythm" has been extensively studied in rats and its rhythmicity has recently been shown to be functionally significant, per se, and relevant aspects of the hippocampal literature are used to provide perspective on one of the most studied human EEG rhythms: frontal-midline theta. Expand
Hippocampal cellular and network activity in freely moving echolocating bats
TLDR
The first hippocampal recordings from echolocating bats are reported, which showed place cells very similar to those of rodents, and support the hypothesis that theta oscillation in the mammalian hippocampus is involved in sequence learning and hence, theta power should increase with sensory-input rate. Expand
Hippocampal theta activity following selective lesion of the septal cholinergic systeM
TLDR
Findings indicate that the integrity of the septohippocampal GABAergic projection is sufficient to maintain some hippocampal theta activity, and hypothesize that cholinergic neurons serve to increase the population phase-locking of septal cells and thereby regulate the magnitude of hippocampalTheta.

Theta Oscillations in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe during Real-World Ambulatory Movement
TLDR
Critical support is provided for conserved neurobiological characteristics of theta oscillations during ambulatory spatial navigation, while highlighting some fundamental differences across species in these oscillations between humans and rodents. 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
Theta Oscillations in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe during Real World Ambulatory Movement
TLDR
The results suggest that higher frequency theta indeed exists in humans during movement providing critical support for conserved neurobiological mechanisms for spatial navigation. 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
Restoring theta‐like rhythmicity in rats restores initial learning in the Morris water maze
TLDR
It is demonstrated that brain rhythmicity, per se, can be important for mental processing even when the detailed information originally carried by neurons is lost and when the reinstated pattern of population firing is not normal. Expand
EEG sharp waves and sparse ensemble unit activity in the macaque hippocampus.
TLDR
The results of this initial study of ensembles of primate hippocampal neurons are consistent with previous studies in rodents and consistent with the hypothesis that theories and models of hippocampal memory function developed on the basis of rat data may be applicable to a wide range of mammalian species.

TLDR
Atropine-resistant activation of the cerebrum may play a role in the emission and control of normal behavior and may mediate many of the behavioral effects of centrally acting drugs such as anesthetics, tranquilizers, or stimulants. Expand

TLDR
The findings in all patients suggest that the rhythmic slow activity ('theta') found in rats and cats during specific behaviors is not observed in the human hippocampal formation during the homologous behaviors. Expand

Movement-related potentials within the hippocampal formation of the monkey
TLDR
A series of large amplitude potentials were recorded within and surrounding the hippocampal formation in association with repetitive, self-paced hand movements in the monkey, suggesting that the hippocampus is involved in the initiation and control of even simple voluntary movements in a primate.

In an epileptic patient with depth electrodes placed in the hippocampus, there existed a significant peak in the theta band of the hippocampal EEG of this subject under a number of behavioural circumstances. Expand

TLDR
The literature concerning the correlates of hippocampal RSA (theta) has seen a wealth of hypotheses generated from seemingly contradictory data, so the answer to the question as to whether there are species differences in the occurrence of RSA may be yes or not, depending upon how specifically the question is posed.

Sleep of unrestrained chimpanzee: cortical and subcortical recordings.
TLDR
Visual observations on seven all night continuous telemetered EOG, EMG, and cortical and subcortical EEG records from each of five unrestrained juvenile chimpanzees show decrease in amplitude and increase in frequency of cortical activity characterized arousal from REM periods while arousal from nonREM sleep often showed hippocampal flattening preceeding cortical.

Laminar distribution of hippocampal rhythmic slow activity (RSA) in the behaving rat: Current-source density analysis, effects of urethane and atropine
TLDR
It is suggested that field RSA is produced by several rhythmical dipoles along the somadendritic surface of pyramidal cells and granule cells and the spatiotemporal relations of the individual dipoles determine the actually observed extracellular RSA. Expand
Hippocampal, hypothalamic and lateral geniculate activity during visual discrimination in the monkey.
TLDR
In hippocampus and lateral geniculate bodies, EEG spectral patterns over the range 4 to 24 Hz, just prior to discriminative responses, were statistically different from periods preceding stimulus onset, just after stimulus onset and preceding spontaneous presses to response switches during the inter-trial interval.
