Non-Linear Dynamics Generating Theta Phase Precession in Hippocampal Closed Circuit and Generation of Episodic Memory

Abstract

We propose a hypothesis for the neural mechanism underlying theta phase precession of place cell firing, based on phase locking by mean field interactions in a coupled-oscillator system, followed by inheritance through the hippocampal circuit. It is demonstrated that the temporal pattern inherited through the network can result in encoding of the temporal… (More)
