In the introduction to our article "Topological reorganization of odor representations in the olfactory bulb" (PLoS Biol 5:e178, 2007), we briefly review previous results concerning the functional spatial organization of odor-evoked activity patterns in subglomerular layers of the olfactory bulb. After publication, we have been alerted to an article by Johnson et al. [1] that includes a comparison of 2-deoxyglucose uptake patterns evoked by different odors in the external plexiform and internal plexiform/superficial granule cell layers of the rat olfactory bulb. We recommend readers of our paper to consult this article because it contains background information relevant to our study and apologize if this work has not been represented appropriately in our introduction.
