In mammals, olfaction is often used to distinguish individuals on the basis of their unique odor types (genetically programmed body odors). Parental-offspring recognition behavior is mediated, in part, by learning and processing of different odor types and is crucial for reproductive success. Maternal recognition behavior and associated brain plasticity has been well characterized, but paternal recognition behavior and brain plasticity is poorly understood. We found that paternal-adult… Expand
Disruption of Adult Neurogenesis in the Olfactory Bulb Affects Social Interaction but not Maternal Behavior
TLDR
Reduction of olfactory neurogenesis results in an abnormal social interaction pattern with male, but not female, conspecifics; it is suggested that this effect could result from the inability to detect or discriminate male odors and could therefore have implications for the recognition of potential mating partners. Expand
Chemical olfactory signals and parenthood in mammals
TLDR
Recent studies have revealed some neural processing of these cues confirming the importance of mother-young chemical communication in the authors' own species, and some evidence indicates a functional link between olfactory neurogenesis and maternal behavior. Expand
Newborn Interneurons in the Accessory Olfactory Bulb Promote Mate Recognition in Female Mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in adult female mice, exposure to the male urine compounds involved in mate recognition increases the number of new granule cells surviving in the AOB, indicating that adult neurogenesis is essential for specific brain functions such as persistent odor learning and mate recognition. Expand
Linking adult olfactory neurogenesis to social behavior
TLDR
It is suggested that the abnormal interaction with males could result from the inability to detect or discriminate male-specific odors and could therefore have implications for the recognition of potential mating partners. Expand
Disruption of adult olfactory neurogenesis induces deficits in maternal behavior in sheep
TLDR
Results indicate that adult‐born olfactory neurons are to some extent involved in the establishment of maternal behavior in sheep by contributing to the processing of offspring odors. Expand
Newborn neurons in the adult olfactory bulb: Unique properties for specific odor behavior
TLDR
The combination of diverse methods for modulating neurogenesis levels with distinct behavioral paradigms has revealed that interneurons generated during adulthood play a role in olfactory behavior. Expand
The Role of Olfactory Genes in the Expression of Rodent Paternal Care Behavior
TLDR
The roles that 10 olfactory genes play in the expression of direct paternal care behaviors are highlighted, and many of these genes modulate parental aggression towards intruders, and facilitate the recognition and discrimination of pups in general. Expand
Bi-Parental Care Contributes to Sexually Dimorphic Neural Cell Genesis in the Adult Mammalian Brain
TLDR
It is shown that bi-parental care, in early life, increases neural cell genesis in the adult rodent brain in a sexually dimorphic manner, and single parent-raised male and female offspring, whose fathers and mothers received bi- Parental Care, display a similar enhancement in adult Neural cell genesis and phenotypic behaviour. Expand
Estradiol‐induced neurogenesis in the female accessory olfactory bulb is required for the learning of the male odor
TLDR
Olfactory exposure decreased cell survival in the AOB in WT females, suggesting a role for estradiol in a structure involved in sexual behavior and newborn neurons do not seem to be functionally involved inThe AOB of ArKO mice compared with WT, when females were exposed to the odor of a familiar male. Expand
Young adult-born neurons improve odor coding by mitral cells
TLDR
It is shown that higher excitability and broad input connectivity, two well-characterized features of young neurons, underlie their unique ability to boost circuit computation. Expand

Pregnancy-Stimulated Neurogenesis in the Adult Female Forebrain Mediated by Prolactin
TLDR
It is shown that the production of neuronal progenitors is stimulated in the forebrain subventricular zone of female mice during pregnancy and that this effect is mediated by the hormone prolactin, implying that forebrain olfactory neurogenesis may contribute to adaptive behaviors in mating and pregnancy. Expand
Male pheromone–stimulated neurogenesis in the adult female brain: possible role in mating behavior.
TLDR
It is reported that the pheromones of dominant (but not subordinate) males stimulate neuronal production in both the olfactory bulb and hippocampus of female mice, which are independently mediated by prolactin and luteinizing hormone, respectively. Expand
Adult-Born and Preexisting Olfactory Granule Neurons Undergo Distinct Experience-Dependent Modifications of their Olfactory Responses In Vivo
TLDR
It is found that, shortly after they differentiate and synaptically integrate, the population of adult-born olfactory granule neurons has a greater population IEG response to novel odors than mature, preexisting neurons. Expand
A Preliminary Investigation of Parent–Progeny Olfactory Recognition and Parental Investment
The role of olfaction in kin recognition and parental investment is documented in many mammalian/vertebrate species. Research on humans, however, has only focused on whether parents are able toExpand
Parent-progeny recognition as a function of MHC odortype identity.
TLDR
The ability and proclivity of mothers to recognize and preferentially retrieve syngeneic pups from other pups differing only for MHC is reported, and the ability of pups to recognize their familial environment, regardless of whether they had been nursed by their biological mothers or by foster mothers is reported. Expand
Enriched Odor Exposure Increases the Number of Newborn Neurons in the Adult Olfactory Bulb and Improves Odor Memory
TLDR
It is shown that adult mice housed in odor-enriched cages display improved olfactory memory without a change in spatial learning performance, suggesting that ongoing bulbar neurogenesis could be associated with improved o aroma memory. Expand
Sex differences in the parental behavior of rodents
TLDR
The literature on similarities and/or differences between male and female laboratory rodents in their parental responsiveness is reviewed and how the parental behavior of males and females is influenced by hormones, developmental processes, and prior social experiences is discussed. Expand
Pup recognition in Mus musculus: parental discrimination between their own and alien young.
TLDR
Data indicate that adult mice are able to discriminate between their own and alien offspring; this discrimination appears to be based upon olfactory and possibly gustatory cues rather than auditory ones. Expand
Aging Results in Reduced Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Signaling, Diminished Olfactory Neurogenesis, and Deficits in Fine Olfactory Discrimination
TLDR
Aged mice exhibited no differences from young adult mice in their ability to discriminate between two discrete odors but were significantly poorer at performing discriminations between similar odors, suggesting that the impairment in fine olfactory discrimination with age may result from a reduction in EGF-dependent Olfactory neurogenesis.

True paternal care in a multi-male primate society
TLDR
It is shown that adult males differentiate their offspring from unrelated juveniles and selectively support their offspring in agonistic disputes, and this can be considered true parental care. Expand
