 Project objective

Head direction (HD) cells provide directional information during spatial navigation and thus act as an internal compass. The goal of this study is to understand how the HD circuit creates a lasting neural trace of transient directional changes. Cells selective for HD have been identified in several brain regions, including the retrosplenial cortex (RSC), and display persistent activity in response to transient vestibular turning cues. Although a well-established theoretical framework proposes an elegant circuitry for achieving this self-sustaining activity, biological evidence for such a circuit is lacking. Studies of HD circuitry have faced significant challenges due to the necessity of functional monitoring at large and small scales in vivo, and precise stimulus control. This study will take advantage of recent advances allowing the targeting of specific cells and their inputs for chronic two-photon imaging in the awake, head-fixed, and passively rotated mouse. Experiments will aim to (1) determine the spatial and temporal organization of HD-tuned responses in RSC, and (2) functionally characterize the presynaptic inputs of HD cells. This information will validate or reject a prominent theory of neural network organization, and provide unprecedented insight into a poorly understood but critical brain function.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "RSCHD" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
