The induction of hippocampal theta by reticular stimulation involves a relay to the hippocampus via the posterior hypothalamic-supramammillary region and then the medial septum. Interestingly, sensory- or behaviour-induced theta is accompanied by suppression of hippocampal field CA1 synaptic responses. In the present study, performed on anaesthetized rats, we observed that reticular stimulation also induced a suppression of the CA1 pyramidal cell population spike and the corresponding dendritic… CONTINUE READING
