Light microscopic golgi study of mitral/tufted cells in the accessory olfactory bulb of the adult rat
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.
Vomeronasal epithelial cells of the adult human express neuron‐specific molecules
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.

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.
The morphology of GABA-immunoreactive neurons in the accessory olfactory bulb of rats
The glucose transporter GLUT1 and the tight junction protein occludin in nasal olfactory mucosa.
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.
The volume of the toad medial amygdala-anterior preoptic complex is sexually dimorphic and seasonally variable
Morphological complexity of the glomerulus in the rat accessory olfactory bulb-a Golgi study
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 of…
Microscopic structure of the olfactory organ of the clearnose skate, Raja eglanteria
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.
Immunolocalization of water channel aquaporins in the vomeronasal organ of the rat: expression of AQP4 in neuronal sensory cells.
Observations clearly show that neuronal sensory cells in the vomeronasal organ are unique in that they express abundant AQP4 at their plasma membrane, in marked contrast to the olfactory and central nervous systems, where AQPs are not detectable in neurons, and instead, AQP 4 is abundant in the supporting cells and astrocytes surrounding them.
