Tuning curve transformation varies depending on the glomeruli. a Tuning curves for PNs (red) and OSNs (green). The order of 17 odor stimuli along the x axis is arranged according to PN responses so that the strongest responses are placed on the center and the weakest responses are placed near the edges. The value of lifetime sparseness is indicated in each graph. b Lifetime sparseness of corresponding OSNs and PNs is calculated in the 27 glomeruli (among 29 glomeruli except for DA1 and VA1lm glomeruli)
