Light microscopic golgi study of mitral/tufted cells in the accessory olfactory bulb of the adult rat
TLDR
Investigation of mitral/tufted cells of the accessory olfactory bulb of adult rats found that the difference in the termination of the dendrites of the MTCs may represent a morphological characteristic that is relevant to the coding and/or integration of sensory information. Expand

TLDR
The purposes of this review are to summarize comparative neuroanatomy and to introduce recent progress in neurobiological studies of the VNO, which is a chemosensory organ situated at the base of the nasal septum in the anterior nasal cavity. Expand
The glucose transporter GLUT1 and the tight junction protein occludin in nasal olfactory mucosa.
TLDR
Immunohistochemical examination showed that the tight junction protein occludin was present in the junctions of the olfactory epithelium, suggesting that GLUT1 may serve in nourishing the cells of the Olfactory system. Expand
Microscopic structure of the olfactory organ of the clearnose skate, Raja eglanteria
TLDR
The olfactory organ of juvenile clearnose skates (Raja eglanteria) was studied with the light and electron microscopes and two types of receptor neurons, both bearing microvilli but not cilia, were identified. Expand
Vomeronasal epithelial cells of the adult human express neuron‐specific molecules
TLDR
The results indicate that the adult human VNE contains cells expressing two molecular markers characteristic of neurons and that these cells bear a striking morphological similarity to ORNs. Expand
The morphology of GABA-immunoreactive neurons in the accessory olfactory bulb of rats
TLDR
Results suggest that a large number of the interneurons in the AOB are GABA-IR, and that many somata and dendrites in the granule cell layer were IR. Expand
Morphological complexity of the glomerulus in the rat accessory olfactory bulb-a Golgi study
Using the rapid Golgi method, the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB) of the adult rat was examined. The principal neurons of the AOB were very variable in terms of their dendritic branching pattern andExpand
Electron microscopic observations on the vomeronasal sensory epithelium of a crotaline snake, Trimeresurus flavoviridis
The vomeronasal sensory epithelium of a crotaline snake, Trimeresurus flavoviridis, was shown to consist of a superficial supporting cell layer and an underlying sensory cell layer composed ofExpand
The volume of the toad medial amygdala-anterior preoptic complex is sexually dimorphic and seasonally variable
TLDR
The results suggest that the Am-APON complex has an important role in male sexual behavior, and this complex can be activated during the breeding season in the spring. Expand
The differential staining patterns of two lectins in the accessory olfactory bulb of the rat
TLDR
The results indicate that the glomeruli of the rat AOB have two subdivisions revealed by lectin histochemistry using BSL-I and VVA. Expand
