    Oscillations support short latency co-firing of neurons during human episodic memory formation

    Frédéric Roux, George Parish ... Simon Hanslmayr
    Synchronization of neural firing in the medial temporal lobe at fast, but not slow, theta and gamma oscillations correlates with shorter latencies of co-firing and successful memory formation.

    Human hippocampal responses to network intracranial stimulation vary with theta phase

    Sarah M Lurie, James E Kragel ... Joel L Voss
    Human hippocampal connectivity to network afferents varies continuously with the phase of the local theta oscillation, confirming a putative mechanism by which neural oscillations modulate human hippocampal function.
