Abstract

The olfactory system has generated considerable interest in recent years, mainly focused on receptor genes and early olfactory processing. In this issue of Neuron, Mori et al. focus centrally, providing evidence for slow- and fast-wave states in olfactory cortex that appear to gate the inflow of information underlying conscious smell perception.
