Abstract

A major challenge to understanding cortical function is the complexity
found at both the single-cell and microcircuit levels. Here we outline what is
known about the microcircuitry of the CA1 region of the mammalian
hippocampus. We then explore the possible functional roles of the variety of
neuronal types within this microcircuit during dynamic information processing.
This is considered within the framework of CA1 acting as an associative
storage device during encoding and retrieval of episodic memories
