Olfactory Bulb Odor Map
fMRI Data
Patterns of odor activation in the olfactory bulb by fMRI were first obtained by Yang et al (1998). This is a global mapping method, similar in this respect to the methods of 2-DG and c-Fos. The database (see below) contains images of olfactory bulb slabs from Xu et al (2000), and flat maps used for a systematic comparison of different odor stimuli by Xu et al (2003).
