Direct Medial Entorhinal Cortex Input to Hippocampal CA1 Is Crucial for Extended Quiet Awake Replay.

Neuron | Sep 27, 2017

Hippocampal replays have been demonstrated to play a crucial role in memory. Chains of ripples (ripple bursts) in CA1 have been reported to co-occur with long-range place cell sequence replays during the quiet awake state, but roles of neural inputs to CA1 in ripple bursts and replays are unknown. Here we show that ripple bursts in CA1 and medial entorhinal cortex (MEC) are temporally associated. An inhibition of MECIII input to CA1 during quiet awake reduced ripple bursts in CA1 and restricted the spatial coverage of replays to a shorter distance corresponding to single ripple events. The reduction did not occur with MECIII input inhibition during slow-wave sleep. Inhibition of CA3 activity suppressed ripples and replays in CA1 regardless of behavioral state. Thus, MECIII input to CA1 is crucial for ripple bursts and long-range replays specifically in quiet awake, whereas CA3 input is essential for both, regardless of behavioral state.

Open-source software package for the analysis of neural data. Chronux routines may be employed in the analysis of both point process and continuous data, ranging from preprocessing, exploratory and confirmatory analysis. The current release is implemented as a MATLAB library. Chronux offers several routines for computing spectra and coherences for both point and continuous processes. In addition, it also offers several general purpose routines that were found useful such as a routine for extracting specified segments from data, or binning spike time data with bins of a specified size. Since the data can be continuous valued, point process times, or point processes that are binned, methods that apply to all these data types are given in routines whose names end with ''''c'''' for continuous, ''''pb'''' for binned point processes, and ''''pt'''' for point process times. Thus, mtspectrumc computes the spectrum of continuous data, mtspectrumpb computes a spectrum for binned point processes, and mtspectrumpt compute spectra for data consisting of point process times. Hybrid routines are also available and similarly named - for instance coherencycpb computes the coherency between continuous and binned point process data.
