Computational approaches to hippocampal function

Curr Opin Neurobiol. 1992 Apr;2(2):209-11. doi: 10.1016/0959-4388(92)90014-c.


The results of theoretical work have led researchers to suggest that the hippocampal formation may maximize its memory storage capacity by recoding events into patterns that are as dissimilar to one another, and which use as few neurons per event, as possible.
