# Dataset: Phaser cells The data in this repository supported the findings of two manuscripts describing neurons with coupled firing rate and theta phase, termed 'phaser cells,' that we found in the lateral septum and hippocampus. First, in 2017, we published a preprint with early iterations of the analysis and simulations: > Monaco, J. D., Blair, H. T., & Zhang, K. (2017). Spatial theta cells in competitive burst synchronization networks: Reference frames from phase codes. BioRxiv, 211458. https://doi.org/10.1101/211458 Second, we have published a more comprehensive narrative of the phaser cell phenomena and simulation studies: > Monaco, J. D., De Guzman, R. M., Blair, H. T., & Zhang, K. (2019). Spatial synchronization codes from coupled rate-phase neurons. PLOS Computational Biology, 15(1): e1006741. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1006741 ## Installing the data There are two components to the phaser cell project's data: 1. The processed recording data (including computed spatial maps) that served as the basis for all data analysis is available at `/HDF/spc-dataset.zip`. 2. The intermediate data for each particular analysis or simulation presented in the paper is available at `/Analysis/spc-results.zip`. To install the data for use with the project's source code, unzip both files inside of a `projects/spc` folder in your home directory, e.g.: $ mkdir -p ~/projects/spc $ mv ~/Downloads/spc*zip ~/projects/spc $ cd ~/projects/spc $ unzip spc-dataset.zip && rm spc-dataset.zip $ unzip spc-results.zip && rm spc-results.zip ## Project source code The source code for all of the data analysis and simulations can be downloaded as a [zip file archive from a repository](http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.6072317) maintained by [figshare](http://www.figshare.com). The README file describes how to install and run the code.
