        The navigational skills of a rat form an integral part of most experimental paradigms designed to study learning and memory. It is therefore, of interest to know the spatio temporal dynamics involved in this behavior. As the rat navigates through space there is activation of hippocampal place cell circuitry and both rate and temporal aspects of the place cell firing contribute to determine the rat’s location. As a result of a combination of electrophysiological and computational approaches various models have been proposed to explain how the hippocampal place cells encode this information.  However these models are based on data collected from either acute slices or from anesthetized rats. The authors of this paper (Harvey et al., Nature 2009) make a heroic attempt to obtain whole cell recordings from an awake rat while it navigates a virtual reality environment.  Using this strategy they give us a better insight into the intracellular dynamics of hippocampal place cells.
