HIGHLIGHT
  • Differential representation of landmark and self-motion information along the CA1 radial axis: self-motion generated place fields shift toward landmarks during septal inactivation. Fattahi M, Sharif F, Geiller T, Royer S. J Neurosci 2018
  • Micro-drive and headgear for chronic implant and recovery of optoelectronic probes. Chung J, Sharif F, Jung D, Kim S, Royer S. Scientific Reports 2017
  • Place cells are more strongly tied to landmarks in deep than in superficial CA1. Geiller T, Fattahi M, Choi JS, Royer S. Nat Com 2017
  • Control of timing, rate and bursts of hippocampal place cells by dendritic and perisomatic inhibition. Royer S, Zemelman BV, Lozoncsy A, Kim J, Chance F, Magee JC, Buzsaki G. Nat Neurosci 2012
  • Distinct representations and theta dynamics in dorsal and ventral hippocampus. Royer S, Sirota A, Patel J, Buzsaki G. J Neurosci 2010
