A mechanism for the formation of hippocampal neuronal firing patterns that represent what happens where

Prof. Adriano Tort (IC-UFRN/IINNELS)

The association of specific events with the context in which they occur is a fundamental feature of episodic memory. However, the underlying network mechanisms generating what-where associations are poorly understood. It was recently reported that some hippocampal principal neurons, called item-place cells, develop representations of specific events occurring in particular locations. In this talk, I’ll present new experimental results that strongly suggest a mechanism leading to the formation of item-place cell assemblies in the hippocampus.
