Behavioral studies show that human odor perception is highly dynamic, incorporates both spatial and temporal codes, and is easily influenced by information from other sensory systems such as vision. However, the neural representation of odor perception and its dynamic processing by the brain is poorly understood. In this research, using olfactory task fMRI, we attempt to unravel how olfactory-related neural networks interact in both space and time in order to explore how the olfactory and the visual systems integrate information at the central or perceptual levels in the human brain.
