The entorhinal-hippocampal system consists of multisynaptic feedforward loops that carry information. Such local operations are generally reflected by macroscopic oscillations, with the recruitment of principal neurons temporally protracted and terminated by the buildup of inhibition. Oscillatory coupling across networks not only provides a temporal framework in which information can be packaged, but also can facilitate the exchange of information and influence the direction of activity flow. This chapter describes potential mechanisms in the entorhinal-hippocampal system and explores the role of oscillations in information processing in the hippocampus. It explains reciprocal information transfer by oscillations and discusses the propagation of activity through multiple stages of the hippocampus.

Keywords:   entorhinal-hippocampal system, feedforward loops, oscillations, neurons, oscillatory coupling, information processing, hippocampus, information transfer
