This model illustrates the rapid online learning of odor representations, and their recognition despite high levels of interference (other competing odorants), in a model of the olfactory bulb external plexiform layer (EPL) network. The computational principles embedded in this model are based on the those developed in the biophysical models of Li and Cleland (2013, 2017). This is a standard Python version of a model written for Intel's Loihi neuromorphic hardware platform (The Loihi code is available at https://github.com/intel-nrc-ecosystem/models/tree/master/official/epl).
