Our conscious experience of the world is enabled by the self-organized activity of neural populations, distributed across multiple areas of the brain. One structure in the mammalian brain, the hippocampus, contains neurons whose spiking activity encodes representations of space and time. These representations enable behaviors such as spatial navigation to find resources, and cognitive abilities such as mental time and space travel. I will discuss my recent findings of the organization of excitatory-inhibitory circuits in the hippocampus, and their role in the construction of hippocampal population codes for space and time.
