It has been suggested that the olfactory bulb, the first processing center after the sensory cells in the olfactory pathway, plays a role in olfactory adaptation, odor sensitivity enhancement by motivation and other olfactory psychophysical phenomena. In a mathematical model based on the bulbar anatomy and physiology, the inputs from the higher olfactory centers to the inhibitory cells in the bulb are shown to be able to modulate the response, and thus the sensitivity of the bulb to specific… 
Normalized Neural Representations of Complex Odors
TLDR
A simple statistical model of the processing in the olfactory bulb leads to concentration-invariant, sparse representations of the odor composition, which reveals two generic consequences of global inhibition: odors with many molecular species are more difficult to discriminate and receptor arrays with heterogeneous sensitivities perform badly.
History-Dependent Odor Processing in the Mouse Olfactory Bulb
TLDR
It is shown that MCs adapt to continuous odor presentation and that mixture responses are different when preceded by background, which supports the argument that odor coding in the olfactory bulb depends on the recent history of the sensory environment.
A neural network model of the olfactory system of mice: computer simulation of the attention behavior of mice for some components in an odor
TLDR
A novel artificial neural network model based on the biological structure of an olfactory system is proposed and results indicate that the inhibitory connections from the piriform cortex to the Olfactory bulb may contribute to the individual differences observed in the behavioral experiment.
A neural network model of the olfactory system of mice: simulated the tendency of attention behavior
TLDR
A neural network model approximated to actual number of neurons and the structure of olfactory system is proposed, which confirmed not only the proposed model had ability of Attention, but also the tendency of Attention was consistent with the living mice.
Odor concentration change detectors in the Olfactory Bulb
TLDR
The results demonstrate that a subset of M/T cells explicitly represents ΔCt, providing a signal that may instruct navigational decisions in downstream olfactory circuits, and the neural representation of ΔCt has not been studied in vertebrates.
Dendrodendritic inhibition and simulated odor responses in a detailed olfactory bulb network model.
TLDR
A biologically realistic model of the mammalian olfactory bulb is developed, incorporating the mitral and granule cells and the dendrodendritic synapses between them, which allows us to observe the network behavior in detail and predicts that the time course of dendroendritic inhibition is dependent on the network connectivity as well as on the intrinsic parameters of the synapses.
Evidence of rapid recovery from perceptual odor adaptation using a new stimulus paradigm
TLDR
It is suggested that the recovery from adaptation proceeds at least as rapidly as the onset of adaptation, a finding that is consistent with physiological evidence from olfactory receptors.
A probabilistic approach to demixing odors
TLDR
This work proposes that the early olfactory system uses approximate Bayesian inference to solve the demixing of odors, and is compatible with known anatomy and physiology, including pattern decorrelation, and performs better than other models at demixed odors.
Investigation of the role of interneurons and their modulation by centrifugal fibers in a neural model of the olfactory bulb
TLDR
A neural model of the mammalian olfactory bulb is presented which allows to separately investigate the functional consequences of the two types of interneurons onto the relay neurons responsiveness to odors and proposes that the combined action of centrifugal control at two different layers of processing is complementary.

Modeling the olfactory bulb and its neural oscillatory processings
TLDR
A mathematical model based on the bulbar anatomy and electrophysiology and analysis shows that a group of coupled non-linear oscillators are responsible for the oscillatory activities of the olfactory bulb.
Olfactory adaptation and recovery in man as measured by two psychophysical techniques
TLDR
Two psychophysical procedures were investigated in man: modified category scaling and threshold detection, which yielded similar qualitative information regarding loss and recovery of olfactory sensitivity as a function of time and concentration of adapting stimuli.
Changes in absolute detection threshold and in subjective intensity of suprathreshold stimuli during olfactory adaptation and recovery
Olfactory adaptation and recovery to methyl isobutyl ketone at a concentration 10 times the absolute detection threshold (Ito) was intensively studied in two human Ss. A combined psychophysical
EEG analysis gives model of neuronal template-matching mechanism for sensory search with olfactory bulb
TLDR
It is postulated here that the spatial EEG pattern is dependent on a neural template for that odor that is formed during training, and that Vj depends on the template and is relatively insensitive to input, whether or not input is given to template elements.
Nonlinear dynamics of paleocortex manifested in the olfactory EEG
TLDR
The model suffices to replicate the forms of the EEG burst; the pulse probability distributions conditional on the EEG; the waveforms of averaged evoked potentials and post stimulus time (PST) histograms from the bulb and cortex; and the changes in waveform induced by behavioral control of attentiveness and habituation.
Receptor cell responses to odorants: Similarities and differences among odorants
Changes in spatial patterns of rabbit olfactory EEG with conditioning to odors.
TLDR
Electrode arrays were implanted epidurally on the olfactory bulbs of rabbits for EEG recording, and EEG spatial patterns did not reflect conformal mapping of odor stimulus to neural activity response, but were determined by state variables of the animal related to Olfactory conditioning history.
Responses of olfactory receptor cells to step pulses of odour at different concentrations in the salamander.
TLDR
The majority of receptor cells in the salamander have a stereotyped discharge response pattern and a systematic relation to odour concentration, which appears to reflect the simple time course of the odour pulses used in these experiments.
