After surgical section of the vomeronasal nerves the neurosensory cells in the vomeronasal epithelium die. Electron microscopy has been used to demonstrate that their axons, and synaptic terminals in the accessory olfactory bulb degenerate and are removed by phagocytic astroglia. The vacated postsynaptic sites in the accessory bulb persist, and are not re-innervated, either by vomeronasal or olfactory axons, as long as 150 days post-operatively. However, new neurosensory cells which are… CONTINUE READING
