    Neuron 32:723-35. 2001
    ..Finally, odorant activation slopes could differ across glomeruli, and for different odorants activating the same glomerulus. These results imply a high degree of complexity in odorant representations at the level of olfactory bulb input...

    Daniel W Wesson
    Department of Biology, Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS Biol 6:e82. 2008
    ..These results suggest a coding strategy in which the earliest-activated glomeruli play a major role in the initial perception of odor quality, and place constraints on coding and processing schemes based on simple changes in spike rate...
