Description

Abstract

Animals rely on olfaction to find food, attract mates and avoid predators. In this talk I will present some of our recent findings about how different features of an odor stimulus, such as odor identity and odor intensity, are encoded in mouse piriform cortex, and will reveal the specific roles that different elements of the neural circuit play in shaping those representations. In particular, we reveal a central role for intrinsic recurrent circuitry in supporting concentration-invariant coding and olfactory pattern completion.
