Properties of hippocampal place cell firing during goal-directed spatial navigation

By Bruno Poucet

Appears in collection : 6th France-Israel conference in neuroscience: the power of mathematics in contemporary neuroscience / 6ème colloque franco-israelien en neurosciences : repenser le rôle des mathématiques en neurosciences

In this talk, I will summarize some of our results on the properties of hippocampal place cells in rats that solve various spatial navigation tasks. Several of these properties are directly relevant to their role in navigation, including the phenomenon of local remapping, overdispersion (variability in firing), and goal-related firing, and thus emphasize the participation of place cells in the coding of spatial information and the computation of optimal paths.
