Cortical Circuits for Odor Coding

Tuesday, November 20, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
CUIMC, Neurological Institute Auditorium, 1st floor, 710 West 168th Street
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.
