Hippocampal theta (4-10 Hz) oscillation represents a well-known brain rhythm implicated in spatial cognition and memory processes. Its cellular mechanisms remain a matter of debate, and previous computational work has focused mostly on mechanisms intrinsic to the hippocampus. On the other hand, experimental data indicate that GABAergic cells in the medial septum play a pacemaker role for the theta rhythm. We have used biophysical modeling to address two major questions raised by the septal… Expand
GABAergic Neurons of the Medial Septum Lead the Hippocampal Network during Theta Activity
TLDR
Whether the sequence of events during theta formation supports the classic view of septal drive or the challenging theory of hippocampal pacing of theta is uncovered by analyzing the temporal relationship of activity between the PV/HCN-containing medial sePTal neurons and hippocampal local field potential. Expand
Huygens synchronization of medial septal pacemaker neurons generates hippocampal theta oscillation
TLDR
Experimental and theoretical support is provided to a frequency-synchronization mechanism for pacing hippocampal theta, which may serve as an inspirational prototype for the countless examples of synchronization processes in the central nervous system from Nematoda to Anthropoda to Chordate and Vertebrate phyla. Expand
How do glutamatergic and GABAergic cells contribute to synchronization in the medial septum?
TLDR
Using computer simulations, it is shown that the GABAergic neurons in both models are capable of generating antiphasic theta periodic population oscillation relying on local, septal mechanisms and suggest that neurons being non-cluster-firing in vitro might exhibit clustering properties when connected into a network in vivo. Expand
Neurophysiological and computational principles of cortical rhythms in cognition.
TLDR
A plethora of studies will be reviewed on the involvement of long-distance neuronal coherence in cognitive functions such as multisensory integration, working memory, and selective attention, and implications of abnormal neural synchronization are discussed as they relate to mental disorders like schizophrenia and autism. Expand
[Theta rhythmicity in the medial septum: entraining by the GABA-ergic neurons].
TLDR
In order to better understand the mechanisms involved in rhythmic burst firing of the MS/DB neurons, a number of relevant theoretical models related to the generation/synchronization in neural networks are discussed. Expand
The presence of pacemaker HCN channels identifies theta rhythmic GABAergic neurons in the medial septum
TLDR
The data imply that HCN‐expressing GABAergic neurons provide rhythmic drive in all phases of the hippocampal theta activity, which is apparently determined by interactions at the level of the network rather than by the pacemaking property of HCN channels alone. Expand
Modeling synchronous theta activity in the medial septum: key role of local communications between different cell populations
TLDR
A model of interactions between all neural populations of the MSDB that underlie the formation of the synchronous septal theta signal is worked out and it is shown that the theta rhythm generation can be performed by a system of glutamatergic and GABAergic non-projection neurons. Expand
Combining Theory, Model, and Experiment to Explain How Intrinsic Theta Rhythms Are Generated in an In Vitro Whole Hippocampus Preparation without Oscillatory Inputs
TLDR
It is found that spike frequency adaptation and postinhibitory rebound constitute a basis for theta generation in large, minimally connected CA1 pyramidal (PYR) cell network models with fast-firing parvalbumin-positive (PV+) inhibitory cells. Expand
Intrinsic and synaptic mechanisms determining the timing of neuron population activity during hippocampal theta oscillation.
TLDR
A conductance based three-population network model of the hippocampal CA1 region was constructed and showed that the circuitry consisting of pyramidal cells and two types of hippocampal interneurons was able to generate coherent theta-frequency population oscillation. Expand
Phase relations of theta oscillations in a computer model of the hippocampal CA1 field: Key role of Schaffer collaterals
TLDR
This work uses neural network modeling to study the mechanism of theta rhythm emergence in the CA1 microcircuitry and finds that the input from the CA3 field via Schaffercollaterals plays a major role in the formation of phase relations that have been observed in experiments in vivo. Expand

Do septal neurons pace the hippocampal theta rhythm?
TLDR
Four models of the septo-hippocampal connections involved in theta rhythm production are reviewed as the precise roles of these projections are discussed, and in the final, consolidated model both cholinergic and GABAergic septal projection cells fire in rhythmic bursts that entrain hippocampal interneurons.

The prospects of an intrahippocampal mechanism supplying pyramidal cells with theta frequency periodic inhibition, by studying a model of a network of hippocampal inhibitory interneurons, are investigated. Expand

TLDR
Fast Oscillations in Cortical Circuits uses a combination of electrophysiological and computer modeling techniques to analyze how large networks of neurons can produce both epileptic seizures and functionally relevant synchronized oscillations. Expand
Gamma Oscillation by Synaptic Inhibition in a Hippocampal Interneuronal Network Model
TLDR
It is demonstrated that large-scale network synchronization requires a critical (minimal) average number of synaptic contacts per cell, which is not sensitive to the network size, and that the GABAA synaptic transmission provides a suitable mechanism for synchronized gamma oscillations in a sparsely connected network of fast-spiking interneurons.

Spindle rhythmicity in the reticularis thalami nucleus: Synchronization among mutually inhibitory neurons
TLDR
It is suggested that if GABAB receptors exist postsynaptically in the reticularis, they may play a critical role in the rhythmic synchronization among reticular neurons, hence in the thalamocortical system. Expand
Interactions between Hippocampus and Medial Septum during Sharp Waves and Theta Oscillation in the Behaving Rat
TLDR
Cross-correlated hippocampal sharp wave (SPW) ripples or theta activity and extracellular units recorded in the medial septum and diagonal band of Broca in freely moving rats indicate that the activity of medial sePTal neurons can be negatively (during SPW) or positively (during theta waves) correlated with theActivity of hippocampal interneurons.

TLDR
It is proposed that interneuron network oscillations, in conjunction with intrinsic membrane resonances and long-loop (such as thalamocortical) interactions, contribute to 40-Hz rhythms in vivo. Expand

TLDR
The finding of a subthreshold, voltage-gated, Na+-dependent rhythmic membrane oscillation in mammalian neurons indicates that rhythmicity in heterogeneous neuronal networks may be supported by different sets of intrinsic ionic mechanisms in each of the neuronal elements involved. Expand
Synchronization of neuronal activity in hippocampus by individual GABAergic interneurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated that individual GABAergic interneurons can effectively phase spontaneous firing and subthreshold oscillations in hippocampal pyramidal cells at 4–7 Hz, and this GABAergic mechanism is sufficient to synchronize the firing of pyramsidal cells. Expand
Action potentials and relations to the theta rhythm of medial septal neurons in vivo
TLDR
The results suggest that generation of theta rhythm requires a background of excitatory influences on the hippocampus in combination with the phasic disinhibitory action mediated by the GABAergic MS-DB projection. Expand
