Olfactory deprivation enhances normal spine loss in the olfactory bulb of developing ferrets.

Abstract

Ferrets show a sensitive phase in their postnatal development during which they can become imprinted to food odors. At the same time the number of granule cell spines in the olfactory bulb reaches a maximum, declining significantly thereafter. In ferrets, exposed continuously to saturated levels of geraniol odor in the cage environment, the normal decline… (More)
