The current review advances the argument that it is naïve to ascribe a unitary function to the hippocampal formation (HPC). Rather, it is more productive to consider the hippocampal formation as consisting of a number of subsystems, each subsystem defined by its own particular neural circuitry. Among examples of neural circuitry appearing in current hippocampal literature are theta, beta and gamma oscillations, sharp waves, place cells and head orientation cells. Data are reviewed supporting… Expand
The Function of Oscillations in the Hippocampal Formation
TLDR
The hippocampus provides an invaluable model system for understanding the functional roles of neuronal oscillations and the interaction between oscillations, and how key variables are linked not only to power but also to frequency and to coherence. Expand
Basal ganglia–hippocampal interactions support the role of the hippocampal formation in sensorimotor integration
TLDR
The results support the following conclusions: (1) the cellular activity of the basal ganglia, composed of nuclei traditionally associated with motor functions, is functionally connected with the neural circuitry involved in the generation of theta band oscillation and synchrony in the hippocampal formation; and (2) the observed functional connectivity provides support for the role of the hippocampusal formation in sensorimotor integration.

Theta rhythm of the hippocampus: subcortical control and functional significance.
TLDR
It is suggested that the hippocampus receives two main types of input: theta rhythm from ascending brain stem- diencephaloseptal systems and information bearing mainly from thalamocortical/cortical systems. Expand
Theta Dynamics: Speed, Acceleration and Contribution to Cognition
Theta (6-12 Hz) rhythmicity in the local field potential (LFP) and neuronal discharge reflect a clocking mechanism that brings physically isolated neurons together in time, allowing for theExpand
Hippocampal Theta-Based Brain Computer Interface
TLDR
Results have been consistent and substantial—theta-contingent training produces a two- to four-fold increase in learning speed, accompanied by striking differences in hippocampal, prefrontal and cerebellar electrophysiological patterns. Expand
Theta Oscillations during Active Sleep Synchronize the Developing Rubro-Hippocampal Sensorimotor Network
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that the infant rat red nucleus (RN)-a brainstem sensorimotor structure-exhibits theta oscillations restricted primarily to periods of active (REM) sleep. Expand
Septotemporal variation in dynamics of theta: speed and habituation.
TLDR
The results outline a dynamic and distributed pattern of network activity across the septotemporal axis of the hippocampus in relation to locomotor speed and recent past experience. Expand
Frontal-midline theta from the perspective of hippocampal “theta”
TLDR
The hippocampal "theta rhythm" has been extensively studied in rats and its rhythmicity has recently been shown to be functionally significant, per se, and relevant aspects of the hippocampal literature are used to provide perspective on one of the most studied human EEG rhythms: frontal-midline theta. Expand
Theta oscillations reflect a putative neural mechanism for human sensorimotor integration.
TLDR
Cortical theta synchronization and mu desynchronization may represent broadly applicable rhythmic mechanisms for sensorimotor integration in the human brain. Expand
Theta and gamma coherence across the septotemporal axis during distinct behavioral states
TLDR
The results demonstrate a generally consistent pattern of theta and gamma coherence across the septotemporal axis of the hippocampus that is quite indifferent to sensory input and overt behavior. Expand

TLDR
A dualistic hypothesis in which RSA per se is regarded as having a different meaning from its frequency shifts is developed, which fosters thinking and research strategies along heretofore unexploited directions, which could create the necessary data base for a more precise concept of RSA significance.

Anatomical, Electrophysiological and Pharmacological Studies of Ascending Brainstem Hippocampal Synchronizing Pathways
TLDR
The present review has provided evidence that very potent ascending brainstem hippocampal synchronizing pathways originate in the rostral pons region, and ascend to and synapse with several midline caudal diencephalic nuclei which send projections to the medial septal region (MS/vDBB). Expand
Hippocampal formation is involved in movement selection: evidence from medial septal cholinergic modulation and concurrent slow-wave (theta rhythm) recording
TLDR
The results provide the first evidence to link atropine-sensitive theta rhythm and hippocampal structures to a role in sensory integration and planning for the initiation of movement. Expand
Hippocampal theta field activity and theta-on/theta-off cell discharges are controlled by an ascending hypothalamo-septal pathway
TLDR
The initial recovery of theta-on cells in the post-procaine condition was correlated with the first appearance of theTA and was characterized by low discharge rates, and three of the dependent measures of hippocampal field activity showed a progressive recovery during the 60-min post- Procaine period. Expand
Brainstem-diencephalo-septohippocampal systems controlling the theta rhythm of the hippocampus.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the theta rhythm is controlled by a network of cells extending from the brainstem to the septum/hippocampus and that its disruption (electroencephalographic desynchronization) may block or temporarily suspend mnemonic processes of the hippocampus. Expand
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. Expand
State-dependent spike train dynamics of hippocampal formation neurons: evidence for theta-on and theta-off cells
TLDR
There were two distinct populations of neurons whose spike train dynamics varied systematically in relation to the ongoing EEG state and therefore probably played a role in the genesis of these slow wave rhythms. Expand
