    Visual cue-related activity of cells in the medial entorhinal cortex during navigation in virtual reality

    Amina A Kinkhabwala et al.
    Cue cells in the medial entorhinal cortex encode visual cues during virtual navigation, supporting the hypothesis that the brain represents visual cue information to error-correct grid cell firing during path-integration.

    Structural development and dorsoventral maturation of the medial entorhinal cortex

    Saikat Ray, Michael Brecht
    The medial entorhinal cortex is important for spatial memory formation and matures from dorsal, where smaller spatial-scales are represented, to ventral, where larger spatial-scales are represented.
    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.

    Medial entorhinal cortex activates in a traveling wave in the rat

    J Jesús Hernández-Pérez et al.
    The existence of traveling waves in the medial entorhinal cortex, like those observed in the hippocampus, supports the hypothesis that traveling waves coordinate the activity of anatomically distributed circuits.

    Functional properties of stellate cells in medial entorhinal cortex layer II

    David C Rowland et al.
    Stellate cells in the medial entorhinal cortex are functionally heterogeneous but a substantial fraction are grid cells.
    1. Neuroscience

    Inter- and intra-animal variation in the integrative properties of stellate cells in the medial entorhinal cortex

    Hugh Pastoll et al.
    Setpoints that determine the integrative properties of neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex are established at a population level and differ between animals.

    Navigation: Shedding light on stellate cells

    Andrew S Alexander, Michael E Hasselmo
    The relationship between grid cells and two types of neurons found in the medial entorhinal cortex has been clarified.

    Shared rhythmic subcortical GABAergic input to the entorhinal cortex and presubiculum

    Tim James Viney et al.
    GABAergic parvalbumin-expressing 'orchid cells' of the medial septum selectively target GABAergic neurons in connected extra-hippocampal areas of the mouse, providing rhythmically bursting inhibitory input at the peak of hippocampal 5-12 Hz theta oscillatory cycles.

    Functional topography of the human entorhinal cortex

    Tobias Navarro Schröder et al.
    By employing high-field fMRI and taking advantage of well-known global connectivity fingerprints and sensitivity to spatial and non-spatial information, it is shown that the entorhinal cortex is primarily divided into anterior and posterior subregions.

    A map of abstract relational knowledge in the human hippocampal–entorhinal cortex

    Mona M Garvert et al.
    Map-like organisations of relational knowledge can be extracted from the hippocampal-entorhinal system in situations where relationships are non-spatial rather than spatial, discrete rather than continuous, and unavailable to conscious awareness.
