  • The theta rhythm is the largest extracellular synchronous signal that can be recorded from the mammalian brain, and has been strongly implicated in mnemonic functions of the hippocampus. We advance the proposal that the theta rhythm represents a “tag” for short‐term memory processing in the hippocampus. We propose that the hippocampus receives two main types of input, theta from ascending brainstem‐diencephalo‐septal systems and “information bearing” mainly from thalamocortical and cortical… CONTINUE READING
