INTRODUCTION

Famed for his work in elucidating the computational structure of the early olfactory circuit in locusts, Gilles Laurent merges experimental work with powerful analytical tools to analyze the functional responses of neurons to diĀ­erent naturalistic inputs. His current work focuses advances beyond simpler circuits towards the cortex - but, in a characteristically unconventional choice, he has chosen to work with the three-layered cortex in turtles. The simplicity of this model system is countered by its ability to survive in anoxic conditions, allowing researchers to perform intricate experiments, designed to better reveal the computational structure of the underlying neural circuits.
