    A geometric attractor mechanism for self-organization of entorhinal grid modules

    Louis Kang, Vijay Balasubramanian
    The hierarchy of entorhinal grid cell modules with constant scale ratios can self-organize through a new geometrically organized attractor mechanism.

    A spiral attractor network drives rhythmic locomotion

    Angela M Bruno et al.
    The neural population of the Aplysia's pedal ganglion are a low-dimensional spiral attractor, and the parameters of the attractor directly define the properties of the Aplysia's escape locomotion behaviour.

    Velocity coupling of grid cell modules enables stable embedding of a low dimensional variable in a high dimensional neural attractor

    Noga Mosheiff, Yoram Burak
    The neural representation of position in the medial entorhinal cortex may be stabilized by synaptic connectivity across modules, which enforces coherent updates in their states.

    Noise promotes independent control of gamma oscillations and grid firing within recurrent attractor networks

    Lukas Solanka et al.
    Random fluctuations in neuronal firing may enable a single brain region, the medial entorhinal cortex, to perform distinct roles in cognition (by generating gamma waves) and spatial navigation (by producing a grid cell map).

    Replay as wavefronts and theta sequences as bump oscillations in a grid cell attractor network

    Louis Kang, Michael R DeWeese
    An experimentally supported model of grid cells naturally enables them to participate in firing sequences that encode rapid trajectories in space.

    Non-rhythmic head-direction cells in the parahippocampal region are not constrained by attractor network dynamics

    Olga Kornienko et al.
    Head-direction cells in the parahippocampal region can be divided into two functionally distinct classes that are differentially constrained by attractor network dynamics.

    Response repetition biases in human perceptual decisions are explained by activity decay in competitive attractor models

    James J Bonaiuto et al.
    Residual activity from previous trials in a biophysical decision network model causes biases in choice behavior such that a previous response is more likely to be repeated.

    A decentralised neural model explaining optimal integration of navigational strategies in insects

    Xuelong Sun et al.
    The first biology-constrained neural model of insect navigation guidance systems was explained including path integration, visual homing and route following, and their optimal coordination.

    Inferring circuit mechanisms from sparse neural recording and global perturbation in grid cells

    John Widloski et al.
    A novel experimental method and analysis is conceived, based on perturbation and sparse recording, to elucidate the circuit structure and mechanisms underlying the responses of grid cells.

    Building a functional connectome of the Drosophila central complex

    Romain Franconville et al.
    The central complex, a highly conserved insect brain region important for navigation, is characterized by a high degree of recurrence and a sparseness of output pathways.
