Title:  A cell-type- and stage-specific deconstruction of a spatial working memory

The mammalian hippocampus, comprised of serially connected subfields, participates in diverse behavioral and cognitive functions. It has been postulated that parallel circuitry embedded within hippocampal subfields may underlie such functional diversity. Here, I present a coherent molecular-, cellular-, circuit-, and behavioural-level demonstration that the hippocampus embeds structurally and functionally dissociable streams within its serial architecture to guide spatial navigation and memory.
