Abstract: How does the information of spatiotemporal sequence stemming from the hippocampal CA3 area affect the postsynaptic membrane potentials of the hippocampal CA1 neurons? In a recent study, we observed hierarchical clusters of the distribution of membrane potentials of CA1 neurons, arranged according to the history of input sequences (Fukushima et al 2007). In the present paper, we deal with the dynamical mechanism generating such a hierarchical distribution. The recording data were investigated using return map analysis. We also deal with a collective behavior at population level, using a reconstructed multi-cell recording data set. At both individual cell and population levels, a return map of the response sequence of CA1 pyramidal cells was well approximated by a set of contractive affine transformations, where the transformations represent self-organized rules by which the input pattern sequences are encoded. These findings provide direct evidence that the information of temporal sequences generated in CA3 can be self-similarly represented in the membrane potentials of CA1 pyramidal cells.
