    Learning place cells, grid cells and invariances with excitatory and inhibitory plasticity

    Simon Nikolaus Weber, Henning Sprekeler
    A large variety of spatial representations implied in rodent navigation could arise robustly and rapidly from inputs with a weak spatial structure, by an interaction of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic plasticity.

    A principle of economy predicts the functional architecture of grid cells

    Xue-Xin Wei et al.
    Mathematical modeling suggests that grid cells in the rodent brain use fundamental principles of number theory to maximize the efficiency of spatial mapping, enabling animals to accurately encode their location with as few neurons as possible.

    Impaired speed encoding and grid cell periodicity in a mouse model of tauopathy

    Thomas Ridler et al.
    Dementia-related tau pathology reduces speed encoding in the medial entorhinal cortex and is associated with reduced grid cell function, whilst head direction tuning remains intact.
    1. Neuroscience

    During hippocampal inactivation, grid cells maintain synchrony, even when the grid pattern is lost

    Noam Almog et al.
    Grid cells lose their hexagonality during hippocampal inactivation, but maintain temporal and spatial synchrony between pairs of cells, implying that hippocampus does not determine phase relations between grid cells.

    Extracting grid cell characteristics from place cell inputs using non-negative principal component analysis

    Yedidyah Dordek et al.
    Computational modeling of the brain’s navigation system reveals that place cells can drive the formation of hexagonal patterns experimentally observed in grid cells activity.

    Grid-cell representations in mental simulation

    Jacob LS Bellmund et al.
    Functional magnetic resonance imaging performed while people imagined directions from stationary viewpoints supports theories suggesting that spatially tuned cells such as grid cells underlie mental simulation for future thinking.

    The self-organization of grid cells in 3D

    Federico Stella, Alessandro Treves
    A computational model for the formation of neural networks of grid cells in virtual bats suggests that the highly ordered networks presumed to support spatial navigation in two dimensions cannot be routinely established in three-dimensional space.

    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.
    1. Neuroscience

    Visual landmarks sharpen grid cell metric and confer context specificity to neurons of the medial entorhinal cortex

    José Antonio Pérez-Escobar et al.
    The firing rate of MEC neurons conveys information about visual landmarks.
    1. Neuroscience

    A theory of joint attractor dynamics in the hippocampus and the entorhinal cortex accounts for artificial remapping and grid cell field-to-field variability

    Haggai Agmon, Yoram Burak
    A theory of coordinated neural network dynamics in multiple brain areas offers an explanation for several recent experimental findings in the hippocampus and medial entorhinal cortex.
