Hippocampal Theta Rhythm and Memory‐Guided Behavior
Along with place cells, the hippocampal theta rhythm is one of the most predominant and well-studied physiological patterns in the hippocampal literature. This chapter outlines the major behavioral correlates of theta rhythm, particularly pertaining to learning and memory, and then discusses the relationship between theta rhythm and the activity of individual neurons (including place cells) in hippocampus. Computational models that have been used to link learning and memory functions to theta rhythm and theta-related hippocampal unit firing are reviewed to generate hypotheses for future experimental studies.
