An olfacto-hippocampal network is dynamically involved in odor-discrimination learning.
TLDR
Recorded local field potentials from the olfactory bulb and dorsal and ventral hippocampus during acquisition of odor discriminations in a go/no-go task support hippocampal involvement in the network underlying odor-discrimination learning and suggest that cooperation between the dorsal andventral hippocampus varies with learning progress.
Topographic distribution of direct and hippocampus‐ mediated entorhinal cortex activity evoked by olfactory tract stimulation
TLDR
The present report demonstrates that the output generated by the hippocampal activation is unevenly distributed across different EC subregions and indicates that exclusively the medial and caudal divisions receive a deep‐layer input from the hippocampus.
Theta and beta oscillatory dynamics in the dentate gyrus reveal a shift in network processing state during cue encounters
TLDR
In vivo electrophysiological recordings of local field potentials in the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus as rats performed three different associative learning tasks obtained decreases in theta amplitude and increases in beta amplitude in the DG may reflect a shift in processing state that occurs when encountering meaningful cues.
Olfaction, navigation, and the origin of isocortex
TLDR
This article proposes that the origin of the isocortex was driven by behavioral adaptations involving olfactory driven goal-directed and navigating behaviors, linked with increasing sensory development, which provided selective pressure for the expansion of the dorsal pallium.
Gamma, fast, and ultrafast waves of the brain: Their relationships with epilepsy and behavior
Slow Oscillations in the Mouse Hippocampus Entrained by Nasal Respiration
TLDR
It is demonstrated that nasal respiration strongly modulates hippocampal network activity in mice, providing a long-range synchronizing signal between olfactory and hippocampal networks.
Analyzing the neuroglial brainstem circuits for respiratory chemosensitivity in freely moving mice
TLDR
Understanding of chemosensory control in the adult awake mouse is revises and paves the way to understanding how breathing is coordinated with complex non-ventilatory behaviours such as swallowing and vocalisation.

INTRACELLULAR RECORDS FROM HIPPOCAMPAL PYRAMIDAL CELLS IN RABBIT DURING THETA RHYTHM ACTIVITY.
TLDR
The theta rhythm usually exists in unanesthetized animals and becomes prominent after various kinds of afferent stimulation or after stimulation of the midbrain reticular formation, and in this descriptive sense the hippocampal EEG bears an inverse relationship to the neocortical EEG.
