The anterior part of the piriform cortex (the APC) has been the focus of cortical-level studies of olfactory coding and associative processes and has attracted considerable attention as a result of a unique capacity to initiate generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Based on analysis of cytoarchitecture, connections, and immunocytochemical markers, a new(More)
Basket cells, defined by axons that preferentially contact cell bodies, were studied in rat piriform (olfactory) cortex with antisera to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic markers (GABA, glutamate decarboxylase) and to peptides and calcium binding proteins that are expressed by basket cells. Detailed visualization of dendritic and axonal arbors was(More)
