Comments p.1 right column bottom paragraph: "Temporal Encoding in the Olfactory System: The issue of time in the neuronal encoding of odors was highlighted in the pioneering works of Maxwell M. Mozell, who discovered that different molecules migrated through the olfactory mucosa with different time-scales. Mozell suggested that “this chronographic differentiation may be one of the mechanisms underlying olfactory discrimination” (Mozell, 1964 Mozell and Jagdowicz, 1973). The time for the transduction of the olfactory stimulus to the nervous system can be approximated to 150 ms (primary source). These observations have since informed a vast literature on the role of temporal coding in the olfactory system."
