Chemosensory neurons in the vomeronasal organ (VNO) detect pheromones that elicit social and reproductive behaviors in most terrestrial vertebrates. Vomeronasal receptor neurons are chemoarchitecturally divided into two populations based on their position in the VNO, the type of G-protein subunit expressed, the family of putative pheromone receptor expressed, and termination site of their axons in the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB). To investigate the functional implications of these two… CONTINUE READING
