Electroolfactogram and electrovomeronasogram recordings were made from garter snakes stimulated with vapor of amyl acetate, butanol and of earthworm wash. The olfactory epithelium was more sensitive than the vomeronasal epithelium to all three stimuli. Volatiles from prey washes were capable of stimulating the olfactory epithelium when delivered as airstreams. The vomeronasal epithelium was sensitive only to the air delivery of vapor of amyl acetate. Single unit recordings from the mitral cell… CONTINUE READING
