Olfactory projections have been investigated for decades, but few reports using modern, sensitive neural tracers are available. In marsupials, only lesion-degeneration studies exist and they are restricted to the genera Didelphis and Trichosurus. Some of the territories described as olfactory-recipient such as the upper portion of the rhinal fissure and the vomeronasal amygdala are, however, controversial. Also, the characterization of the olfactory portion of the entorhinal cortex is far from… CONTINUE READING
