This chapter provides a detailed account of the assumption underlying the theory, its architecture, and mechanisms, and describes its operation under a number of different scenarios. Theta rhythm is held to provide control of the recursive passage of information between hippocampus and cortical areas when the hippocampus is engaged in critical functional output. The theory is described as an integration and blend of a wide range of earlier views of hippocampal function.

Keywords:   hippocampus, theory, rhythm, cortical
