Olfactory system : odorant detection and classification

  title={Olfactory system : odorant detection and classification},
  author={Walter J. Freeman},
The architecture and dynamics of the olfactory system have evolved to solve the major problems in olfactory information processing. The problems stem from the requirement for an immense number of receptor cells in the nose needed to capture odorant molecules in low concentration and unpredictable variety. They include normalization and dynamic range compression of input; generalization of output over equivalent receptor cells; selective amplification of foreground odorants against complex… CONTINUE READING
