Parallel Mitral and Tufted Cell Pathways Route Distinct Odor Information to Different Targets in the Olfactory Cortex
Odor signals are conveyed from the olfactory bulb to the olfactory cortex (OC) by mitral cells (MCs) and tufted cells (TCs). However, whether and how the two types of projection neuron differ inExpand

Analysis of Relations between NMDA Receptors and GABA Release at Olfactory Bulb Reciprocal Synapses
In the mammalian olfactory bulb, signal processing is mediated by synaptic interactions between dendrites. Glutamate released from mitral cell dendrites excites dendritic spines of granule cells,Expand

The olfactory granule cell: From classical enigma to central role in olfactory processing
The granule cell of the olfactory bulb was first described by Golgi in 1875 and Cajal and his contemporaries in the 1890s as an enigmatic cell without an axon, whose status as a nerve cell wasExpand

Dynamic Gating of Spike Propagation in the Mitral Cell Lateral Dendrites
A unique feature of the olfactory bulb circuit is the long projection of the mitral cell lateral dendrites. Through dendrodendritic reciprocal synapses, these dendrites connect one olfactoryExpand

Cancer photothermal therapy in the near-infrared region by using single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have a high optical absorbance in the near-infrared (NIR) region. In this special optical window, biological systems are known to be highly transparent. TheExpand

Computational analysis of action potential initiation in mitral cell soma and dendrites based on dual patch recordings.
In olfactory mitral cells, dual patch recordings show that the site of action potential initiation can shift between soma and distal primary dendrite and that the shift is dependent on the locationExpand

Viral tracing identifies distributed columnar organization in the olfactory bulb
Olfactory sensory neurons converge onto glomeruli in the olfactory bulb (OB) to form modular information processing units. Similar input modules are organized in translaminar columns for otherExpand

Differential Axonal Projection of Mitral and Tufted Cells in the Mouse Main Olfactory System
In the past decade, much has been elucidated regarding the functional organization of the axonal connection of olfactory sensory neurons to olfactory bulb (OB) glomeruli. However, the manner in whichExpand

Optical imaging of postsynaptic odor representation in the glomerular layer of the mouse olfactory bulb.
Olfactory glomeruli are the loci where the first odor-representation map emerges. The glomerular layer comprises exquisite local synaptic circuits for the processing of olfactory coding patternsExpand
