Sniff-synchronized, gradient-guided olfactory search by freely-moving mice
For many organisms,searching for relevant targets such as food or mates entails active, strategic sampling of the environment. Finding odorous targets may be the most ancient search problem that motile organisms evolved to solve. While chemosensory navigation has been well characterized in micro-organisms and invertebrates, spatial olfaction in vertebrates is poorly understood. We have established an olfactory search assay in which freely-moving mice navigate noisy concentration gradients ofdoi:10.1101/2020.04.29.069252 fatcat:qpzrfdoplzh3jirkh7frfbsobu
