A distinctive feature in the topographic organization of the olfactory system in mammals is the dual function of the odorant receptor (OR): it detects odors in the nasal epithelium and plays an instructive role in the axonal convergence of olfactory sensory neurons (OSN) into the olfactory bulb (OB). The latter function is supported by genetic experiments… CONTINUE READING
