Stimulus-onset asynchrony can aid odor segregation

Abstract

Insects have a remarkable ability to identify and track odor sources in multi-odor backgrounds. Recent behavioral experiments show that this ability relies on detecting millisecond stimulus asynchronies between odors that originate from different sources [1]. Honeybees are able to distinguish mixtures where both odors arrive at the same time (synchronous… (More)
