Decoding Hippocampal Place Cell Data

A place cell is a type of pyramidal neuron in the hippocampus that modulates its activity when an animal enters a particular place in its environment. Download a dataset of neural recordings from place cells in the hippocampus of a rat that is moving along a linear track, obtained from Matt Wilson’s lab. Explore a lab activity in MATLAB to recover the animal’s trajectory from the neural activity, using multiple estimation techniques.
