Direct excitation of mitral cells via activation of alpha1-noradrenergic receptors in rat olfactory bulb slices.

Abstract

The main olfactory bulb receives a significant modulatory noradrenergic input from the locus coeruleus. Previous in vivo and in vitro studies showed that norepinephrine (NE) inputs increase the sensitivity of mitral cells to weak olfactory inputs. The cellular basis for this action of NE is not understood. The goal of this study was to investigate the… (More)
