Utilizing electrophysiological recordings from CA1 pyramidal cells in freely moving mice, we find that a majority of neural responses are modulated by the heading-direction of the animal relative to a point within or outside their enclosure that we call a reference point. Our findings identify a novel representation in the neuronal responses in the dorsal hippocampus
