The DOS committee is pleased to announce the participation of Dr. Rokni from the Hebrew University, Israel in Digital Olfaction 2021 Annual meeting which will be held on December 6-7, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan & Online. Dr. Dincer will present recent development on the “Mixture Coding and Segmentation in the Anterior Piriform Cortex“.
Dr. Dan Rokni’s research shows that coding of odorous stimuli has been mostly studied using single isolated stimuli. He adds that the olfactory system is therefore faced with the task of segmenting odor mixtures to identify objects in the presence of rich and often unpredictable backgrounds. Additionally, in his study, he asks two questions: How are mixtures represented in the piriform cortex? And can the identity of individual mixture components be read out from mixture representations in the piriform cortex? To answer these questions, they recorded single unit activity in the piriform cortex of naïve mice while sequentially presenting single odorants and their mixtures.
