These elegant studies help resolve the question of the function of local inhibition in the mammalian olfactory bulb (OB), greatly expanding our understanding of sensory processing mechanisms.
In contrast to most brain regions, inhibitory interneurons far outnumber excitatory neurons in the OB.
However, the function of bulbar inhibition...
