The piriform cortex (PCX) is the largest component of the olfactory cortex and is hypothesized to be the locus of odor object formation. The distributed odorant representation found in PCX contrasts sharply with the topographical representation seen in other primary sensory cortices, making it difficult to test this view. Recent work in PCX has focused on(More)
OBJECTIVE We present a systematic review and meta-analysis of the frequency, consequences, and treatment of stent loss during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND Stent loss during PCI has received limited study. METHODS We conducted a meta-analysis of 18 case series and 45 case reports published between 1991 and 2012 on stent loss(More)
Associating an odorant's chemical structure with its percept is a long-standing challenge. One hindrance may come from the adoption of the organic chemistry scheme of molecular description and classification. Chemists classify molecules according to characteristics that are useful in synthesis or isolation, but which may be of little importance to a(More)
