Left-right-alternating theta sweeps in the entorhinal-hippocampal spatial map

Kavli Affiliate: Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser | Authors: Abraham Z. Vollan, Richard J. Gardner, May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser | Summary: Place cells in the hippocampus and grid cells in the entorhinal cortex are elements of a neural map of self- position. To benefit navigation, this representation must be dynamically related to surrounding […]

Phylogeny of neocortical-hippocampal projections provides insight in the nature of human memory

Kavli Affiliate: Menno Witter | Authors: Daniel Reznik, Piotr Majka, Marcello GP Rosa, Menno P Witter and Christian F Doeller; | Summary: Throughout mammalian evolution, the hippocampal region, unlike the neocortex, largely preserved its cytoarchitectural organization and its role in mnemonic functions. This contrast raises the possibility that the hippocampal region receives different types of […]

Increased functional integration of emotional control network in late adulthood

Kavli Affiliate: Maryam Ziaei | Authors: Leona R Baetz, Shuer Ye, Xiaqing Lan and Maryam Ziaei | Summary: Across the adult lifespan, there are changes in how emotions are perceived and regulated. As individuals age, there is an observed improvement in emotion regulation and overall quicker recovery from negative emotions. While previous studies have shown […]

Cilia-mediated cerebrospinal fluid flow modulates neuronal and astroglial activity in the zebrafish larval brain

Kavli Affiliate: Emre Yaksi | Authors: Percival P D’Gama, Inyoung Jeong, Andreas Moe Nygard, Ahmed Jamali, Emre Yaksi and Nathalie Jurisch-Yaksi | Summary: The brain uses a specialized system to transport cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This system consists of interconnected ventricles lined by ependymal cells, which generate a directional flow upon beating of their motile cilia. […]

Resilience-driven neural synchrony during naturalistic movie watching: an ultra-high field fMRI study

Kavli Affiliate: Maryam Ziaei | Authors: Shuer Ye, Leona Rahel Batz, Jain Jain, Alireza Salami and Maryam Ziaei | Summary: Sharing others’ emotional states may facilitate the understanding of their well-being characteristics, such as resilience. Despite increasing attention given to resilience for its role in maintaining mental health, the intricacies of its underlying neural correlates […]

Investigating egocentric tuning in hippocampal CA1 neurons using simulated data

Kavli Affiliate: Edvard Moser & May-Britt Moser | Authors: Jordan Carpenter, Jan Sigurd Blackstad, David Tingley, Valentin A. Normand, Edvard I. Moser, May-Britt Moser and Benjamin A. Dunn | Summary: Navigation requires integrating sensory information with a stable schema to create a dynamic map of an animal’s position using egocentric and allocentric coordinate systems. In […]

A combined DTI-fMRI approach for optimizing the delineation of posteromedial vs. anterolateral entorhinal cortex

Kavli Affiliate: Menno Witter | Authors: Ingrid Framas Syversen, Daniel Reznik, Menno P. Witter, Asgeir Kobro-Flatmoen, Tobias Navarro Schroder and Christian F. Doeller | Summary: In the entorhinal cortex (EC), attempts have been made to identify the human homologue regions of the medial (MEC) and lateral (LEC) subdivision using either functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) […]

Association cortical areas in the mouse contain a large population of fast-spiking GABAergic neurons that do not express parvalbumin

Kavli Affiliate: Menno Witter and Maximiliano Jose Nigro | Authors: Erik J Courcelles, Kasper Kjelsberg, Laura Convertino, Rajeevkumar Raveendran Nair, Menno P Witter and Maximiliano J Nigro | Summary: GABAergic neurons represent 10-15% of the neuronal population of the cortex but exert a powerful control over information flow in cortical circuits. The largest GABAergic class […]
