This is a biophysical model of the olfactory bulb (OB) that contains three types of neurons: mitral cells, granule cells and periglomerular cells. The model is used to study the cellular and synaptic mechanisms of OB gamma oscillations. We concluded that OB gamma oscillations can be best modeled by the coupled oscillator architecture termed pyramidal resonance inhibition network gamma (PRING).
