We have exploited the complementary arrangement of afferents in a coronal slice (300-400 microm) of the rat olfactory tubercle (OT) maintained in vitro to investigate transmission in two separate synaptic pathways. We recorded extracellular responses within the OT dense cell layer in slices and stimulated either the outermost layer to activate primary… CONTINUE READING
