This work describes a biophysical model of the initial stages of vertebrate olfactory system containing structures representing the olfactory epithelium and bulb. Its main novelty is the introduction of gap junctions connecting neurons both in the epithelium and bulb, and of biologically detailed dendrodendritic synapses between granule and mitral cells in(More)
This work consists of a computational study of the electrical responses of three classes of granule cells of the olfactory bulb to synaptic activation in different dendritic locations. The constructed models were based on morphologically detailed compartmental reconstructions of three granule cell classes of the olfactory bulb with active dendrites(More)
EEG oscillations are found in several structures of the olfactory system, like the olfactory epithelium (OE), olfac-tory bulb (OB) and pyriform cortex (PC). From the theoretical side a possible way to study mechanisms responsible for the origin of these oscillations is the construction of biologically detailed computational models, which can exhibit(More)
