    Walking Drosophila navigate complex plumes using stochastic decisions biased by the timing of odor encounters

    Mahmut Demir et al.
    Visualized odor encounters show that Drosophila navigate spatiotemporally complex odor plumes using random walks biased by the timing of brief and unpredictable odor encounters.

    Distinct lateral inhibitory circuits drive parallel processing of sensory information in the mammalian olfactory bulb

    Matthew A Geramita et al.
    Distinct lateral inhibitory circuits affect spiking in olfactory bulb mitral and tufted cells differently, which ultimately allows each cell type to best discriminate between similar odors in separate concentration ranges.

    Pregnancy Loss: A possible link between olfaction and miscarriage

    Neven Borak, Johannes Kohl
    Unexplained repeated pregnancy loss is associated with an altered perception of male odors and differences in brain regions that process smells.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Advancing biology through a deeper understanding of zebrafish ecology and evolution

    David M Parichy
    The zebrafish is a premier model organism for biomedical research, with a rich array of tools and genomic resources, and combining these with a fuller appreciation of wild zebrafish ecology could greatly extend its utility in biological research.
