The accessory olfactory system mediates intraspecies pheromonal communication. Two subsets of spatially segregated vomeronasal sensory neurons, presumably handling functionally and structurally different sets of ligand molecules, can be distinguished. The two subsets of sensory neurons project their axons to segregated zones of the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB) and connect with zonally separated mitral/tufted (M/T) cells, suggesting that the accessory olfactory system is divided into two… CONTINUE READING
