The Synaptic Organization of the Brain
Introduction to synaptic circuits, Gordon M.Shepherd and Christof Koch membrane properties and neurotransmitter actions, David A.Brown and Anthony M.Brown.
The Olfactory Bulb
The Olfactory bulb is the primary center for transmission of olfactory information to the vertebrate brain and provides for integration and modulation of the information by means of pathways from midbrain and forebrain centers.
The neocortical circuit: themes and variations
Similarities in neocortical circuit organization across areas and species suggest a common strategy to process diverse types of information, including sensation from diverse modalities, motor control

Convergent evidence points to IT versus PT differentiation of the corticostriatal system at all levels of functional organization, from cellular signalling mechanisms to circuit topology.
Three-Dimensional Structure and Composition of CA3→CA1 Axons in Rat Hippocampal Slices: Implications for Presynaptic Connectivity and Compartmentalization
Physiological studies of CA3→CA1 synaptic transmission and plasticity have revealed both pre- and postsynaptic effects. Understanding the extent to which individual presynaptic axonal boutons could
Theoretical reconstruction of field potentials and dendrodendritic synaptic interactions in olfactory bulb.
A computational model was developed that could reconstruct the distribution of electric potential as a function of two variables, time and depth in the bulbar layers, following a synchronous antidromic volley in the lateral olfactory tract.
Mechanisms of olfactory discrimination: converging evidence for common principles across phyla.
The findings support the hypothesis that olfactory transduction and neural processing in the peripheral Olfactory pathway involve basic mechanisms that are universal across most species in most phyla.
