We have developed (Burgalossi et al., Neuron 2011) and further optimized (e.g. Tang et al., Nature Protocols 2014; Diamantaki et al., Cell Reports 2018) a juxtacellular recording method, which allows morphological identification and stimulation of single neurons in freely-moving rodents (rats and mice). We employ single-cell identification and single-cell stimulation techniques for gaining insights into the structural correlates and plasticity of spatial coding in the entorhinal-hippocampal circuit. Our single-cell approach is currently complemented with more standard optogenetic and extracellular recording techniques.
