  • A Respiration-Coupled Rhythm in the Rat Hippocampus Independent of Theta and Slow Oscillations

    05/11/2016
    Hippocampal respiration rhythm in rats. This work shows that the hippocampus produces two low-frequency rhythms at nearby frequencies: one that couples to respiration and another that is coupled to the neocortex. The results support a role for brain oscillations in connecting distant brain...
  • Rats Synchronize Locomotion with Ultrasonic Vocalizations at the Subsecond Time Scale

    09/29/2016
    Acoustic signals have the potential for transmitting information fast across distances. Rats emit ultrasonic vocalizations of two distinct classes: “22-kHz” or “alarm” calls and “50-kHz” calls.
