Hippocampal Theta, Gamma, and Theta/Gamma Network Models
Hippocampal theta, gamma, and theta/gamma network models refer to mathematical models of networks that are able to generate oscillations within the theta (4–12 Hz), gamma (25–140 Hz), and nested theta/gamma frequency ranges in the hippocampus.
The focus is on network models consisting of biophysically motivated cell models in the hippocampus that are concerned with network rhythm generation.
This entry discusses some common motives involved as well as questions that arise in constructing these network models, provides a tabular summary of existing theta/gamma network models, and gives further details of some of the network models.
