I'm reading the PNAS paper Neural encoding of the concept of nest in the mouse brain by Lin et al. 2007

A certain 'nest cell' is described in the paper that fires only when the mouse approaches its nest. My question is: can the same nest cell fire at other concepts or is it solely dedicated to 'nest'? If it's only dedicated to one single concept, that seems like a limiting waste.
