A model of specific neural assemblies in the insect antennal lobe.

Inhibitory local neurons (LNs) receive inputs from olfactory glomeruli. Consequently, stimulus patterns activate specific inhibitory sub-circuits (only a few connections are displayed for clarity). In the model of Martinez and Montejo (see Martinez and Montejo, doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000139), the relative number between fast GABAA and slow GABAB inputs regulates synchrony and determines whether particular projection neurons engage in the neural assembly (synchronized neurons are colored in black).
