The olfactory bulb of mammals aids in the discrimination of odors. A mathematical model based on the bulbar anatomy and electrophysiology is described. Simulations of the highly non-linear model produce a 35–60 Hz modulated activity which is coherent across the bulb. The decision states (for the odor information) in this system can be thought of as stable cycles, rather than point stable states typical of simpler neuro-computing models. Analysis shows that a group of coupled non-linear…

Circuit properties generating gamma oscillations in a network model of the olfactory bulb.
TLDR
It is shown that lateral inhibition provides a mechanism by which the dynamic processing of odor information might be finely tuned within the OB circuit.
An oscillation-driven neural network for the simulation of an olfactory system
TLDR
The nature of odour-receptor interactions and the conditions controlling neural oscillations are analysed and the basis for the proposed biologically plausible three-tiered model of an oscillation-driven neural network (ODNN) with three non-linearities is proposed.
Coupled Oscillators as a model of Olfactory Network. Importance in Pattern Recognition and Classification tasks
TLDR
Network topology analysis of the subcritical regime is presented as a proof of the importance of synapse plasticity for memory functions in the olfactory cortex.

TLDR
A mathematical model based on the bulbar anatomy and physiology shows that 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 odor inputs.
A model of cholinergic modulation in olfactory bulb and piriform cortex.
TLDR
It is indicated that cholinergic modulation in the OB significantly increases contrast and synchronization in mitral cell output, and both bulbar modulation effects contribute to more stable learned representations in PC.
A coupled-oscillator model of olfactory bulb gamma oscillations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an inhibition-coupled intrinsic oscillator framework, pyramidal resonance interneuron network gamma (PRING), best captures the diversity of physiological properties exhibited by the olfactory bulb, and this coupled cellular oscillator architecture permits stable and replicable ensemble responses to diverse sensory stimuli under various external conditions as well as to changes in network parameters arising from learning-dependent synaptic plasticity.
Detailed and abstract phase-locked attractor network models of early olfactory systems
TLDR
It is shown that, in this network, odor-like stimuli evoke synchronization of excitatory cells, phase-locked to the oscillations of the local field potential, which is consistent with odor-specific attractors found in recent experimental studies.
Modeling of inhibition/excitation firing in olfactory bulb through spiking neurons
TLDR
The IF extended model proves to be a useful basis from which it can study more sophisticated features as complex pattern formation, and global stability and chaos of OB dynamics.
Olfactory system gamma oscillations: the physiological dissection of a cognitive neural system
TLDR
A summary of what has been learned about the functional role and mechanisms of gamma oscillations in the olfactory system as a guide for similar studies in other cortical systems is presented.
Signal-induced selection among spontaneous oscillatory patterns in a model of honeybee olfactory glomeruli
Do the oscillations observed in many neural assemblies have a cognitive significance? We investigate this question by mathematical modeling of the honeybee's olfactory glomeruli, which are a

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.
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.

How brains make chaos in order to make sense of the world
TLDR
A model to describe the neural dynamics responsible for odor recognition and discrimination is developed and it is hypothesized that chaotic behavior serves as the essential ground state for the neural perceptual apparatus and a mechanism for acquiring new forms of patterned activity corresponding to new learned odors is proposed.
Mapping of odor-related neuronal activity in the olfactory bulb by high-resolution 2-deoxyglucose autoradiography.
TLDR
High-resolution 2-deoxyglucose autoradiography is applied to the mapping of spatial patterns of metabolic activity at the level of single neurons in the olfactory bulb and it is suggested that the glomerulus as a whole serves as a functional unit of activity.

Nonlinear gain mediating cortical stimulus-response relations
TLDR
It is concluded that large numbers of neurons in the olfactory bulb of the waking animal are maintained in a sensitive nonlinear state, that corresponds to the domain of the subthreshold local response of single axons, as it is defined by Rushton and Hodgkin.
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.
