Odor information is processed in spherical structures called glomeruli, which in all animals with differentiated olfactory systems are sites of densely spaced synaptic contacts between olfactory sensory axons and target central nervous system (CNS) neurons. Glomerulus development in the antennal (olfactory) lobe of the moth brain, which is initiated by the arrival of antennal receptor axons, requires interaction among three elements: glial cells, receptor axons, and their targets, the antennal… CONTINUE READING
