Noise correlations in neural ensemble activity limit the accuracy of hippocampal spatial representations

Recent work lead by Omer Hazon and Pablo Jercog reveals that, due to noise correlations, mouse hippocampus only encodes space with a limited resolution of 10cm (about the size of the mouse) & only ~1000 neurons are needed to decode space to this limit.
