Computing with Neural Synchrony
A, Two odors are randomly presented to the network for 40 s. This histogram represents the distribution of tuning ratios after this learning period. The tuning ratio of a postsynaptic neuron is the proportion of spikes triggered by the first odor. B, Responses of postsynaptic neurons, ordered by tuning ratio, to odor A (blue) and odor B (red), with an increasing concentration (0.1 to 10, where 1 is odor concentration in the learning phase). C, Voltage traces for a postsynaptic neuron tuned to odor B, when odor A (left) and B (right) are presented.
