Short-term memory in olfactory network dynamics

  title={Short-term memory in olfactory network dynamics},
  author={Mark A Stopfer and Gilles Laurent},
Neural assemblies in a number of animal species display self-organized, synchronized oscillations in response to sensory stimuli in a variety of brain areas.. In the olfactory system of insects, odour-evoked oscillatory synchronization of antennal lobe projection neurons (PNs) is superimposed on slower and stimulus-specific temporal activity patterns. Hence, each odour activates a specific and dynamic projection neuron assembly whose evolution during a stimulus is locked to the oscillation… CONTINUE READING
