In the honey bee antennal lobe, uniglomerular projection neurons (uPNs) transiently spike to odor sensory stimuli with odor-specific response latencies, i.e., delays to first spike after odor
stimulation onset. Recent calcium imaging studies show that the spatio-temporal response profile of the activated uPNs are dynamic and changes as a result
of associative conditioning, facilitating odor-detection of learned odors.
Moreover, odor-representation in the antennal lobe undergo reward-mediated plasticity processes that increase response delay variations
