The adult mammalian olfactory bulb (OB) is unique in that olfactory sensory neurons project directly, without prior thalamic relay, to the OB. This review discusses evidence for the direct involvement of the OB in odor perception and its modulation by olfactory experience. We first discuss recent data showing that the OB exhibits a high level of plasticity in response to olfactory experience including exposure, enrichment, and learning. We next review evidence showing that, in return… Expand
