Relating the midbrain dopaminergic system to hippocampal cell assembly dynamics associated with spatial memory function

Abstract:

Central to the understanding of memory is a detailed understanding of the processes contributing to how some information is retained as memories, yet other information is not. Relevant to this is the question, does value and saliency information coded by dopaminergic neurons of the ventral tegmental area (VTA) affect hippocampal memory function and how might this arise? In order to address this question, I performed large scale extracellular recordings combined with optogenetic activation ...
