Fornical and non-fornical projections from the rat hippocampal formation to the anterior thalamic nuclei.

Our latest paper available for download. We find that contrary to previous descriptions, projections from the subiculum to the anteromedial thalamic nucleus overwhelmingly relied on the fornix, whereas postsubicular inputs to the lateral dorsal part of the anteroventral nucleus, as well as to the anterodorsal and laterodorsal thalamic nuclei, largely proceed via the internal capsule (a non-fornical… Read More

Respiratory cycle entrainment of septal neurons mediates the fast coupling of sniffing rate and hippocampal theta rhythm

Our latest paper: Respiratory cycle entrainment of septal neurons mediates the fast coupling of sniffing rate and hippocampal theta rhythm Take-home message: We suggest that the respiratory system entrains septal neurons, and this entrainment in turn results in the coupling of sniffing and hippocampal theta. Pharmacological inactivation of the medial septum  decreases both theta and… Read More
