The present study documents the morphological changes in the aging human olfactory bulb. Eight bulb pairs from white females between the ages of 25 and 102 years were used. The number of mitral cells in layers IV and III was determined for each bulb and corrected for spilt cell error. Counts were made on 10‐μm thick Nissl‐stained sections at 250‐μm intervals. The mean number of mitral cells per olfactory bulb at age 25 was estimated from linear regression to be 50,935; at age 60, 32,718; and at… Expand
Human Olfactory Bulb: Aging of Glomeruli and Mitral Cells and a Search for the Accessory Olfactory Bulb a
ABSTRACT: The aims of this study on the human olfactory bulb were two. First morphometry of the bulbs revealed marked declines during aging in the numbers of mitral cells and glomeruli, the bulb'sExpand
Age and gender-related differences in mitral cells of olfactory bulb.
TLDR
The number of mitral cells and diameter of their nuclei decreased with advancing age, and no gender-related differences were observed. Expand
A re-estimation of the number of glomeruli and mitral cells in the olfactory bulb of rabbit
TLDR
The results suggest that the numbers of olfactory glomeruli and mitral cells has been previously underestimated in rabbit, and that the number ofglomeruli changes as a function of species, and the glomerular/mitral cell ratio is likely to varied in a wide range across species. Expand
Comparative study of aging in the mouse olfactory bulb
TLDR
Age‐related increases were observed in BALB/cBy and DBA/2 mice but not in the C57BL/6J strain, and TUNEL labeling revealed many apoptotic figures in the granule cell layer of young subjects, almost no staining was seen in aged mice. Expand
Sexual Dimorphism in the Human Olfactory Bulb: Females Have More Neurons and Glial Cells than Males
TLDR
Investigation of a possible sexual dimorphism in the olfactory bulb by quantifying postmortem material with the isotropic fractionator, an unbiased and accurate method to estimate absolute cell numbers in brain regions demonstrates a sex-related difference in the absolute number of total, neuronal and non-neuronal cells.

Age‐related changes in the olfactory system of dogs
TLDR
Dog may be a useful animal model to study the age‐related changes in the olfactory system in man as well as rats, because of its similarity to man and rats. Expand
AGE AND GENDER RELATED DIFFERENCES IN OLFACTORY BULB GLOMERULI IN HUMAN
TLDR
The results showed significant decrease in the number of glomeruli and their diameter with age and no gender related differences were observed. Expand
Structural and immunohistological modifications in olfactory bulb of the staggerer mutant mouse
In the present study, we describe the structural and cytological changes observed in staggerer mutant olfactory bulbs, as compared to normal mice. On the basis of photonic and ultrastructuralExpand
Structural and immunohistological modifications in olfactory bulb of the staggerer mutant mouse.
TLDR
All the structural alterations described in staggerer olfactory bulb were in close agreement with the functional troubles previously recorded and the reality of the gliosis and the persistence of the sensory component in the mutant was confirmed. Expand
THREE-DIMENSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION OF THE ANTERIOR OLFACTORY NUCLEUS IN THE HUMAN OLFACTORY BULB AND PEDUNCLE
TLDR
The bulbar and peduncular parts of the human AON should be regarded a human specialization rather than just being rostral extensions of the retrobulbar AON area, in line with previously published neurochemical properties and the selective early, preclinical degener-ation of these cell clusters in neurodegenerative diseases.

Aging of the rat olfactory bulb: Growth and atrophy of constituent layers and changes in size and number of mitral cells
A quantitative study of the rat olfactory bulb during aging was carried out by directly measuring or calculating the following parameters at 3, 12, 24, 27, and 30 months: the volume of theExpand
Aging in the rat olfactory system: Correlation of changes in the olfactory epithelium and olfactory bulb
TLDR
Two regions closely linked synaptically (olfactory epithelium and olfactory bulb) have been compared in an agegraded series of rats, and numbers of synapses in the glomeruli appear to decline less markedly with age than the number of receptors, and a significant increase in number of synapse per receptor occurs in the oldest group studied, suggesting a compensatory increase in the relative number ofsynapses per receptor in the surviving receptors.

TLDR
It is concluded that major structural age changes in the rat MOB are strain dependent. Expand
The distribution of the size and number of mitral cells in the olfactory bulb of the rat.
TLDR
That mitral cells possess such a distinct pattern of size variation should be considered if representative data are to be obtained from anatomical, electrophysiological and other studies of the olfactory bulb, as size has been shown to be associated with the amount of information processed by a cell. Expand
Neonatal sensory deprivation reduces tufted cell number in mouse olfactory bulbs
TLDR
Quantitative morphometric methods were used in mice to study the effect postnatal olfactory deprivation has on tufted cell size and number, finding that their reduced number in the postnatally deprived Olfactory bulb is probably a consequence of retarded migration or cell death. Expand
The nature of senile changes of the human olfactory bulb and tract.
TLDR
The nature of senile changes found in the human olfactory bulb and tract was investigated in numerous aged persons and in one case which represented "experiment-like" conditions. Expand
The change in volume of the olfactory and accessory olfactory bulbs of the albino rat during postnatal life
TLDR
Transverse sections of the olfactory bulbs were prepared for seventy‐one male and six female albino rats, all of which were of the Experimental Colony strain obtained from The Wiostar Institute, to provide representative ages throughout the whole of the postnatal life cycle. Expand
Olfactory asymmetry in the rat brain
TLDR
The volume of the entire olfactory bulb was found to be significantly greater in the right hemisphere, and this volume asymmetry was the result of a significantly larger right outer stratum. Expand

To determine the dendritic fields, mitral, displaced mitral, middle tufted, and granule cells in the rabbit olfactory bulb were stained by intracellular injection of HRP. The secondary dendrites ofExpand
Immunohistopathology of human olfactory epithelium, nerve and bulb.
TLDR
The immunohistochemical characteristics of the human olfactory system were studied and the presence of OMP reactive and nonreactive OMP neurons indicates the coexistence of two functionally different phases of Olfactory neurons. Expand
