Here we collect the different types of cells in the human entorhinal cortex (EC) hippocampus system organized by their known functionality.
Place Cells – In the hippocampus, they usually fire to a single location in space.
Border Ownership cells
Head direction Cells – They fire when the head of an organism is facing a certain direction. Its an internal compass for your head!
Splitter cells – in the HC, they supposedly fire for common paths vs uncommon paths
landmark vector cells
Object Vector Cells – they fire in relation to an organism’s distance and direction to objects.
Boundary Vector Cells (border cells or boundary cells)
Goal Direction Cells
Non EC-H system cells:
“Social place” Cells
