Increased understanding of the early stages of olfaction has lead to a renewed interest in the higher brain regions responsible for forming unified ‘odor images’ from the chemical components detected by the nose. The piriform cortex, which is one of the first cortical destinations of olfactory information in mammals, is a primitive paleocortex that is critical
for the synthetic perception of odors. Here we review recent work that examines the
cellular neurophysiology of the piriform cortex....[Show more]
