abstract
The hippocampus has long been associated with learning and memory occurring as reverberating activity patterns within ensembles of hippocampal neurons. Fractals, omnipresent in biological and physical systems, often manifest when systems are iterative or reverberatory, and consequently are detectable in spike trains of hippocampal neurons. This dissertation focuses on strengthening the association of neurophysiological forms of learning, memory and plasticity with fractal and multifractal complexity of interspike interval sequences recorded during numerous cognitive and behavioral conditions.
