  • Development of an artificial nose integrating NEMS and biological olfactory receptors

    Microsystems' including biomolecules is currently a research field in fast development and expansion. By coupling biomolecules to non-biological electronic transducers, molecular bioelectronic systems could one day be used in a wide variety of applications, including biosensors, biofuel cells and maybe even biocomputers. A major thrust in this framework is to integrate and process the chemical information at molecular level inside of a microsystem. In this sense, the animal olfactory system represents the gold standard of biosensors with its capability to identify and discriminate thousands of odorant compounds. In order to mimic the performances of natural olfactory biosensors, the overall objective of european project "SPOT-NOSED" is the development of a nanobiosensor array based on the electrical properties of single olfactory receptors. The nanobiosensor array integrates a set of nanotransducers, each of which consists of two noble metal nanoelectrodes with a single olfactory receptor anchored in between.

  • The effects of olfaction on training transfer for an assembly task

    Context-dependent memory studies have indicated that olfaction, the sense of smell, has a special odor memory that can significantly improve recall in some cases. Virtual reality (VR), which has been investigated as a training tool, could feasibly benefit from odor memory by incorporating olfactory stimuli. There have been a few studies on this concept for semantic learning, but not for procedural training. To address this gap in knowledge, we investigated the effects of olfaction on the transfer of knowledge from training to next-day execution for building a complex LEGO jet-plane model. Our results indicate that the pleasantness of an odor significantly affects training transfer more than whether the encoding and recall contexts match.

The novel issues of our design are: synchronization between the acquisition and the olfactory task, automated control of experimental parameters (odorants sequences, frequency, time and concentration of stimuli).

So we utilized the Green fluorescent protein (GFP) genetically labeled mouse M72 as sensing components to improve the specificity. In addition, long-term in vivo electrophysiological monitoring from M72 olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) could be obtained by implanting the Microelectrode arrays (MEAs) probe into behaving mouse's olfactory bulb. We first explored its reliability, repeatability, specificity for odor detection. We thus found it possessed high sensitivity for odors which contain benzene ring. Further, we explored its potential in trinitrotoluene (TNT) detection. The results illustrated that it can detect TNT in liquid concentration as low as 10-8M and can discriminate TNT from chemicals with similar structure. It is suggested that the in vivo biomimetic olfactory system could provide novel approaches for promoting the specificity and working-life of olfactory biosensors as well as detecting explosives.

  • Enhanced Discrimination of Complex Odours Based upon Spatio-Temporalsignals from a Micro-Mucosa

    We recently reported the novel concept of an artificial olfactory mucosa based upon a set of sensor clusters distributed along a channel coated with a retentive layer. Such a system generates complex signals containing both spatial information (i.e. response magnitude) based upon different types of sensors and temporal information (i.e. delay time like in a GC) based upon retention time differences between identical sensors. Here we report on the development of a micro artificial mucosa or micro e-mucosa. The microsystem comprises of a silicon microsensor array coupled to a true 3D micro-fluidic package fabricated by micro-stereolithography. Results show a differential temporal delay of 96 seconds between simple odours (pulses of toluene and ethanol vapour in air) and improved discrimination of complex odours by combining temporal with spatial data. We believe that this new micro e-mucosa offers a significant advance in the field of machine olfaction.

  • Bioelectronic Nose Based on Olfactory Sensory Neural Networks by Microelectrode Array Culture

    Olfaction guides many significant behaviors for creatures so that study on olfactory transduction mechanism is being attended. In the present paper, we present a novel bioelectronic nose with microelectrode array, whose sensing element is the in vitro olfactory sensory neural networks by culture. Using this electronic nose, we observed the spontaneous signals of OSNs as well as the induced response to Acetic acid. Under the action of Acetic acid, the firing rate of neurons increased distinctively. Moreover, at different site of OSNs networks, OSNs appeared different firing pattern. The bioelectronic nose based on OSNs with MEA provided multi scale olfactory information and show electrophysiological characteristics at different position, which is favorable for further modeling the olfactory neuronal networks.

  • The sparse structure of natural chemical environments

    Sparse representations, in which sources are represented by neural ensembles with small average activity ratios, have many desirable properties including ease of learning, the capacity for generalization, and noise resistance. All of these are characteristic of the biological olfactory system, despite activity patterns across receptor arrays often being highly non-sparse. This is possible because the underlying chemosensory data are “signal sparse” - a distinct property, dependent on environmental statistics, that enables sparse coding algorithms to construct representational sparseness in subsequent processing layers. Whereas this can be accomplished by simple rotation in some systems, chemosensory sparse coding requires curvature in the isoresponse surfaces for each neuron owing to the diversity of chemical sources (overcompleteness). We propose that this functional curvature arises from statistical learning processes instantiated in plastic networks of the early olfactory system. Using models of the chemosensory environment, we illustrate the application of sparse coding algorithms to the analysis of chemical signals.

  • Kullback-Leibler distance optimization for artificial chemo-sensors

    A gas sensor optimization method for odor discrimination is introduced in this paper. The method deals with a performance index widely used in the information theory, namely the Kullback-Leibler distance (KL-distance), which gives a quantitative measure of mutual difference between two probability distributions. We argue that optimizing this index over the controllable operating parameter namely ß (i.e., the operating temperature) of a single sensor will allow maximizing the spread of the odor-class prototypes (i.e., the class centers) in the feature space so that a better discrimination of odorants will be possible. We demonstrate on a sample dataset that finely tuning the operating temperature of a metal oxide sensor based on the suggested criterion not only yields a substantial improvement in classification performance but also warns about the existence of temperatures that cause a total confusion in the odor discrimination.

  • On the effect of airflow on odor presentation

    This article describes the investigations on the effect of airflow on the perception of odors presented by an olfactory display device. A clear sensation of the direction to an odor source can be given to the user of the olfactory display when the air currents are provided to the user's face by using fans. When the air currents are not provided, the user feels as if the source is placed nearby. We hypothesize that this sensation is caused by the upward air currents generated by our body temperature. When there is no wind, only the odors from nearby sources are brought to our noses by the upward air currents. The result of a sensory test shows that the perceived location of an odor source changes with the airflow presented to the panelist. Providing airflow together with odors is thus promising to reproduce complicated situations that cannot be reproduced by olfactory stimulation alone.

  • A humidifier for olfaction studies during functional magnetic resonance imaging

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging has been used to study the transmission of olfactory sensations in the nervous system. Researchers hypothesize that olfactory sensation depends on the humidity of the air containing the odorant. We were asked to create this device for a biomedical design course offered at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Our purpose was to create a device for researchers who are conducting initial research on rat models. The device allows researchers to provide a humidified source of oxygen safely to an anesthetized laboratory rat for up to six hour experimental sessions. Furthermore, the humidifier allows the user to manually control the humidity by a simple valve. In addition, the humidifier increases and decreases the humidity by slow increments to ensure the safety of the lab animal as well as the accuracy of the humidity readings. Finally, the design consists of two ports where a gaseous or liquid form odorant may be administered and evaluated for olfactory fMRI information. This device is a user-friendly, user-safe, and animal-safe method of odorant administration for fMRI studies. Moreover, this device can be easily expanded to become a computer-controlled humidifying system.
