We extend our model of the procerebral (PC) lobe of Limax, which is comprised of a layer of coupled oscillators and a layer of memory neurons, each layer 4 rows by 20 columns, corresponding to the cell body layer (burster cells) and neuropil layer (nonburster cells) of the PC lobe. A gradient of connections in the layer of model burster cells induces periodic wave propagation, as measured in the PC lobe. We study odor representations in the biological PC lobe using the technique of Kimura and… CONTINUE READING
