For an animal to successfully navigate its environment, it must form
an accurate internal representation of its surroundings.
Location-specific firing and co-firing of the hippocampal place cells
play a crucial role in spatial cognition, which according to our
recently published model is more akin to a subway map than a street
map, i.e., is primarily topological. We tested our topological model
of hippocampal activity, varying several parameters in computer
