Animals that are primarily dependent on olfaction must obtain a description of the spatial location and the individual odor quality of environmental odor sources through olfaction alone. The variable nature of turbulent air flow makes such a remote sensing problem solvable if the animal can make use of the information conveyed by the fluctuation with time of the mixture of odor sources. Behavioral evidence suggests that such analysis takes place. An adaptive network can solve the essential… CONTINUE READING
