Abstract A major challenge to understanding cortical function is the complexity found both at the single cell and microcircuit levels. This review covers theoretical studies aimed at elucidating dynamic signal processing within hippocampal pyramidal cells. This processing involves both the intrinsic pyramidal cell properties as well as the microcircuit of inhibitory interneurons that synapse onto the cell. These factors are considered within the framework of associative memory function in areas CA1 and CA3 of the mammalian hippocampus.
