Hippocampal spatial view neurons in primates provide allocentric representations of a view of space 'out there'. The responses depend on where the monkey is looking; and can be updated by idiothetic (self-motion) inputs provided by eye movements when the view is hidden. In a room-based object-place memory task, some hippocampal neurons respond to the objects shown, some to the places viewed, and some to combinations of the places viewed and the objects present in those locations. In an object…

Context-dependent representations of objects and space in the primate hippocampus during virtual navigation
TLDR
The results show that neurons in the primate hippocampus nonlinearly mix information about space and nonspatial elements of the environment in a task-dependent manner; this efficient code flexibly represents unique perceptual experiences and correspondent memories.
Spatial coordinate transforms linking the allocentric hippocampal and egocentric parietal primate brain systems for memory, action in space, and navigation

TLDR
A new approach to coordinate transform learning in the brain is proposed, in which the traditional gain modulation is complemented by temporal trace rule competitive network learning.
A scientific theory of Ars Memoriae: Spatial view cells in a continuous attractor network with linked items

TLDR
The theory provides a foundation for understanding how a key feature of ars memoriae, the ability to use a spatial scene to encode a sequence of items to be remembered, is implemented.
Learning Invariant Object and Spatial View Representations in the Brain Using Slow Unsupervised Learning

TLDR
Neurophysiological evidence for the learning of invariant representations in the inferior temporal visual cortex is described and computational mechanisms that enable the brain to learn these invariantrepresentations are proposed.
The intersection between the oculomotor and hippocampal memory systems: empirical developments and clinical implications
TLDR
Findings from human and nonhuman animals are reviewed to show that the oculomotor and hippocampal memory systems interact in a reciprocal manner, on a moment‐to‐moment basis, mediated by a vast structural and functional network.
The neuronal representation of information in the human brain
The responses of single neurons provide evidence that is essential to understanding what information is encoded in a brain area, and how it is encoded, for the information conveyed by a single neuron

Object, space, and object-space representations in the primate hippocampus.
TLDR
The results show that there are separate as well as combined representations of objects and their locations in space in the primate hippocampus, a property required in an episodic memory system, for which associations between objects and the places where they are seen are prototypical.
Spatial View Cells in the Primate Hippocampus
TLDR
A population of ‘spatial view’ cells was found to respond when the monkey looked at a part of the environment and this representation of space ‘out there’ would be an appropriate part of a primate memory system involved in memories of where in an environment an object was seen.
A view model which accounts for the spatial fields of hippocampal primate spatial view cells and rat place cells
TLDR
A common hippocampal mechanism operating with different visual receptive field sizes could account for some of the visual properties of both place cells in rodents and spatial view cells in primates.
Spatial view cells in the primate hippocampus: allocentric view not head direction or eye position or place.
TLDR
Hippocampal function was analysed by making recordings from hippocampal neurons in monkeys actively walking in the laboratory and it was shown that 'Spatial view' cells code for the allocentric position in space being viewed and not for eye position, head direction or the place where the monkey is located.
Allocentric and egocentric spatial information processing in the hippocampal formation of the behaving primate
TLDR
It is shown that it is sufficient for many of these hippocampal spatial neurons to respond that the monkey fixate particular positions in space, and is consistent with the finding in Experiment 1 that the preponderant type of encoding used by these hippocampAL spatial neurons is allocentric.

TLDR
Not only is spatial information processed by the primate hippocampus, but it can be combined with information about which stimuli have been seen before, and the ability of the hippocampus to form such conjunctions may be an important property for its role in memory.
View‐responsive neurons in the primate hippocampal complex
Recordings were made from single neurons in the hippocampus and parahippocampal gyrus while macaques were moved on a platform mounted on a free‐moving robot or on wheels in a cue‐controlled 2 m × 2 m
Information about spatial view in an ensemble of primate hippocampal cells.
TLDR
There is an accurate representation of space "out there" in the primate hippocampus that would be an appropriate part of a primate memory system involved in memories of where in an environment an object was seen, and more generally in the memory of particular events or episodes, for which a spatial component normally provides part of the context.
