Friedrich, R.W. and Stopfer, M. (2001) Recent dynamics in olfactory population coding. Current opinion in neurobiology. 11:468-474.
Recent studies of the olfactory bulb (vertebrates) and antennal lobe (insects) have elucidated how odor information is represented by the identity, synchronization, slow temporal dynamics and position of active neurons in an ensemble. Odor representations are dynamically reorganized both during the course of a stimulus and with experience. These results provide new insights into the logic of odor representations and dynamical network computations.
