1. The response properties of single olfactory bulb units of juvenile sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka) were characterized using behaviorally-relevant natural waters and amino acid solutions as olfactory stimuli. 2. While most cells responded to several stimuli (Fig. 2), some cells were found that responded in a unique way to a single stimulus solution and thereby discriminated it from the other stimuli (Fig. 4). At least one such specific cell was found for each of the natural waters. 3. In… CONTINUE READING
