Theta rhythms in the hippocampus – being clear and open

Oscillatory activities are a ubiquitous feature of brain recordings and likely form part of the neural code. The multi-scale nature of brain dynamics makes it extremely challenging to obtain a cellular-based understanding of these activities. Collaboration is of course essential, but openness and a clarity of model goals are key elements. Along these lines, I will discuss modeling of theta rhythms in the hippocampus from cellular and circuit perspectives.
