Most of the data used in the model are from rat brain (Wistar or Sprague Dawley). When rat data were not available, guinea pig or rabbit data were used. These are the main features NOT modeled in our network:

1) Feedback connections (CA1-CA3, CA3-DG, DG-EC, EC-CA1),
2) The subicular pathway,
3) Non-local interneurons (i.e. intra-fields, DG-CA3, CA3-CA1 gabaergic fibers),
4) Peptidergic modulation (and all neurotransmitters other than glutamate, GABA and AcCh).

Below is a view of the human hippocampal formation (asterisks).
