Simultaneous extracellular recordings from left and right hippocampal areas CA1 and right entorhinal cortex from a rat performing a left / right alternation task and other behaviors. [about]

The data set contains recordings made using a silicon probe from three areas from a single rat that was performing different behavioral tasks.  The three regions recorded from are left and right hippocampal CA1 and right entorhinal cortex.  The tasks are a left/right alternate selection task, wheel running, and platform exploration.   The neural data was recorded on 125 channels. Included in the data set are the following items:

  • Waveforms of putative spikes extracted from original raw broadband data
  • LFPs (local field potentials)
  • Results of spike sorting
  • Information about the animal behavior during the experiment

Several publication based on some of the data:
