The extensive physiological data on hippocampal theta rhythm provide an opportunity to evaluate hypotheses about the role of theta rhythm for hippocampal network function. Computational models based on these hypotheses help to link behavioral data with physiological measurements of different variables during theta rhythm. This paper reviews work on network models in which theta rhythm contributes to the following functions: (1) separating the dynamics of encoding and retrieval, (2) enhancing… Expand
Hippocampal CA1 spiking during encoding and retrieval: Relation to theta phase
TLDR
The modeling results obtained here demonstrated that the experimentally observed phase differences are consistent with different levels of CA3 synaptic input to CA1 during recognition of repeated items. Expand
Theta-Mediated Dynamics of Spatial Information in Hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that place cell activity on different phases of theta reflects positions shifted into the future or past along the animal's trajectory in a two-dimensional environment, suggesting that offset activity may maintain coherent brain activity in the face of information processing delays.

A Neural Model of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Hippocampal Theta Rhythms: Anatomy, Neurophysiology, and Function
TLDR
A neural model of the anatomy, neurophysiology, and functions of intrinsic and extrinsic theta rhythms in the brains of multiple species is described. Expand
Mathematical models provide insight into the role of interneurons in hippocampal CA1 network theta rhythm generation
TLDR
A number of experimentally constrained mathematical network models are developed with a focus on the CA1 hippocampus, describing the development of simple models of individual CA1 parvalbuminpositive (PV+) interneurons, oriens-lacunosum-moleculare (OLM) interneURons, and pyramidal cells (PYR), as derived from an intact, whole hippocampus preparation in vitro expressing population oscillations.

TLDR
This study established an in vitro theta model in a septo-entorhinal-hippocampal brain slice tri-culture system by pairing septal cholinergic inputs with hippocampal local activities and reveals a potential mechanism for theta rhythms to emerge as the functional results of dynamic interactions among the septum, hippocampus, and the entorHinal cortex, in the absence of clear pace makers. Expand
Human hippocampal theta oscillations and the formation of episodic memories
TLDR
Recorded intracranial EEG data from 237 hippocampal electrodes in 33 neurosurgical patients as they performed an episodic memory task identified two distinct patterns of hippocampal oscillations, at ∼3 and ∼8 Hz, which are at the edges of the traditional 4–8 Hz human theta band. Expand
Possible role of acetylcholine in regulating spatial novelty effects on theta rhythm and grid cells
TLDR
It is argued that cholinergic induced grid expansion may enhance, or even induce, encoding by producing a mismatch between expanded grid cells and other spatial inputs to the hippocampus, such as boundary vector cells. Expand
Hippocampal theta, gamma, and theta-gamma coupling: effects of aging, environmental change, and cholinergic activation.
TLDR
The results indicate that age-related changes in gamma and theta modulation of gamma, while reflecting aging changes in hippocampal circuitry, seem less related toaging changes in information processing and that hippocampal aging is related to impaired encoding of new information. Expand
On phasic inhibition during hippocampal theta
TLDR
It is demonstrated that out-of-phase perisomatic and dendritic inhibition, respectively, can promote the necessary conditions for these half cycles of the theta cycle, which is divided into encoding and recall half cycles. Expand
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

Medial prefrontal cortex cells show dynamic modulation with the hippocampal theta rhythm dependent on behavior
TLDR
The majority of the mPFC cells with a significant correlation of firing rate changes with behavior were entrained to hippocampal theta, and cells that fired to specific events during only one direction of running were predisposed to theta modulation only in that direction. Expand
Size of CA1-evoked synaptic potentials is related to theta rhythm phase in rat hippocampus.
Cholinergic and GABAergic neurons projecting to the hippocampus fire with specific phase relations to theta rhythm oscillations in the electroencephalogram (EEG). To determine if this phasic inputExpand
A Proposed Function for Hippocampal Theta Rhythm: Separate Phases of Encoding and Retrieval Enhance Reversal of Prior Learning
TLDR
A hippocampal model shows how theta rhythm could be important for reversal in this task by providing separate functional phases during each 100-300 msec cycle, consistent with physiological data. Expand
Oscillatory brain states and learning: Impact of hippocampal theta-contingent training
TLDR
This finding provides important evidence from awake, behaving animals that supports recent advances in knowledge of brain sites and neurobiological mechanisms of learning and memory, specifically hippocampus and theta oscillations, and the biological plausibility of current models of hippocampal function. Expand
Neuromodulation, theta rhythm and rat spatial navigation
TLDR
A new model of the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex is presented describing the interaction of these regions for goal-directed spatial navigation in behavioral tasks and exploring how phasic changes in physiological variables during hippocampal theta rhythm could provide these different phases and enhance spatial navigation function. Expand
Prefrontal Phase Locking to Hippocampal Theta Oscillations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a significant portion of neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex of freely behaving rats are phase locked to the hippocampal theta rhythm, and phase locking of prefrontal cells is predicted by the presence of significant correlations with hippocampal cells at positive delays up to 150 ms. Expand
Modeling goal-directed spatial navigation in the rat based on physiological data from the hippocampal formation
TLDR
These models used representations of entorhinal cortex layer III, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex to guide movements of a virtual rat in a virtual environment to encoded representations of the environment through long-term potentiation of excitatory recurrent connections between sequentially spiking place cells in ECIII and CA3.

GABAB modulation improves sequence disambiguation in computational models of hippocampal region CA3
TLDR
Computational models of hippocampal region CA3 were used to study the role of theta rhythm in storage and retrieval of temporal sequences of neuronal activity patterns and tonic changes in levels of cholinergic modulation enhance the storage of forked sequences by preventing a strong influence of recurrent synapses during storage. 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.
