Artificially induced dendritic events induce place field plasticity.
Large excitatory synaptic weights and large dendritic inhibition provide place cell stability.
The interplay between somatic and dendritic inhibition balances increased excitatory synaptic weights so that place cell firing returns to baseline.
Dendritic disinhibition and synaptic plasticity promote the development of place cells.
Somatic disinhibition is sufficient to transiently turn silents cells into place cells.

Dendritic non-linearity and stability analysis procedure.
(related to Fig 5). Artificially induced CA1 single cell activity can shift place field location.
Dendritic non-linearity leads to reliable place field development.
