1. In the rabbit olfactory bulb, intracellular potentials were recorded from mitral cells and from neurones in the granule cell layer (g.c.l.) following lateral olfactory tract (l.o.t.) stimulation. 2. Most recordings from mitral cells showed large (5-21 mV) and prolonged (60-650 msec) i.p.s.p.s subseuqent to the antidromic spikes. These i.p.s.p.s decreased(More)
An olfactory projection area was studied in monkeys anesthetized with Nembutal. 1. Evoked potentials were recorded when the olfactory bulb (OB) was electrically stimulated in the lateroposterior portion of the orbitofrontal cortex (LPOF). However, those potentials disappeared when the anterior pyriform cortex (AP) (probably together with the medial portion(More)
1. Evoked potentials restricted to the magnocellular portion of the mediodorsal nucleus (MDmc) of the thalamus were recorded after stimulation of the olfactory bulb (OB) and the posterior orbital cortex of the frontal lobe (OFC). Potentials evoked by stimulation of OB were probably trans-synaptically elicited, while potentials evoked by stimulation of OFC(More)
(1) Regions which exert centrifugal influences on the olfactory bulb activity were studied by applying systematic stimulation to various areas of the ipsilateral telencephalon in the rabbit. By delivering electric stimuli to the anterior commissure (AC), the deep lying structures in the projection areas of the lateral olfactory tract (LOT) and the medial(More)
Swelling of brain cells is one of the physiological responses associated with neuronal activation. To investigate underlying mechanisms, we analyzed interactions between changes in cell volume and synaptic responses in the hippocampal slices from rodents. Swelling within the CA1 area was detected as increases in transmittance of near-infrared light (IR),(More)
1. In the rabbit olfactory bulb, analysis has been carried out on intracellular potentials recorded from mitral cells and neurones in the granule cell layer (g.c.l. cells) in addition to the extracellular field potentials in the olfactory bulb elicited by anterior commissure (a.c.) stimulation. 2. Most mitral cell recordings showed i.p.s.p.s with latency of(More)
Extracellular responses were recorded from neurons in the thalamic mediodorsal nucleus (MD) of the lightly anesthetized rabbit. Eighty-seven neurons responded to electrical stimulation of the lateral olfactory tract (LOT shocks). They were located in the medial portion of the MD. In the same portion, negative field potentials with a short latency were(More)
In the orbitofrontal olfactory area (LPOF) which was delineated in a previous paper, the capacity for odor discrimination was studied and compared with that in the anterior pyriform cortex (AP), the medial portion of the amygdala (MA), and the olfactory bulb (OB). Unanesthetized monkeys were used and eight odors were applied. 1. In the OB, 12.5% of the(More)
