Carbon chain length in several classes of straight-chain aliphatic odorants has been proposed as a model axis of similarity for olfactory research, on the basis of successes of studies in insect and vertebrate species. To assess the influence of task on measured perceptual similarities among odorants and to demonstrate that the systematic similarities(More)
When the major response domains in the rat olfactory bulb that are evoked by odorant enantiomers are compared, some of these odorant pairs do not show significantly different activity patterns. Such pairs are not spontaneously discriminated in a behavioral test. We show here that even these similar odorants appear to evoke different activity patterns when(More)
Dopaminergic modulation of cortical activity has been implicated in the formation of reward associations. There is abundant evidence for dopaminergic effects on olfactory processing. Using an olfactory discrimination task, the authors show that D1 and D2 dopamine receptors can regulate rats' olfactory discrimination capacities and that the effects of(More)
