Hippocampal Place Fields

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews over thirty years of findings from behavioral neurophysiological recordings in the monkey hippocampus. It shows that consistent with the memory space hypothesis, hippocampal neurons provide a rich array of responses that signal all aspects of the ongoing memory trial. It also discuss more recent studies showing strong associative learning signals as well as long-term memory signals in the monkey hippocampus that provide further insight into the plastic and mnemonic properties of hippocampal neurons.

Keywords:   memory space hypothesis, hippocampal neurons, associative learning, long-term memory, plastic, mnemonic
