Abstract

We present a model of the rat head direction cell circuit that accounts for the recently discovered bimodality and distortion observed in the tuning curves of anterior thalamic head direction cells. This model also explains why anterior thalamic head direction cells show a constant amount of anticipation across all angular velocities.
