Friday Paper Post – May 24th 2014 (back from the dead pt. 3)

1) Spatially Distributed Local Fields in the Hippocampus Encode Rat Position Gautam Agarwal, Ian H. Stevenson, Antal Berényi, Kenji Mizuseki, György Buzsáki, Friedrich T. Sommer ; Science 2014 (link)

  • I really enjoyed this paper!
  • Also after following a reader’s twitter (who shared the wonderful ferret spiral move above and whose own blog you can read here) I was lucky enough to be lead to this blog post from Bill Skaggs here.
  • What I really like about the blog post is the back and forth in the commentary from Dr. Skaggs and the first author of the Science paper. I wish there was more scientific discussion like this online. It would be kind of cool if every paper had a comments section! Ok…. with the way the internet and comments sections usually turn out….maybe not … but I can dream.
