Odour Processing By Principal Neurons of the Piriform Cortex In Vivo

Huang, Helena Hung-Yin


The piriform cortex (PC) is important for the cortical processing of olfactory information. The PC is widely viewed as a pattern recognition device whose primary function is the formation of ‘odour objects’, that is, the perception of complex odours comprising many chemical components as single olfactory percepts (e.g. the scent of a rose), a task that is heavily dependent on the intracortical associational network.
