Renewing olfactory receptor neurons in goldfish do not require contact with the olfactory bulb to develop normal chemical responsiveness


This study investigated whether contact with the olfactory bulb was necessary for developing and renewing olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) to attain normal odorant responsiveness, and whether the anatomical and functional recoveries of the olfactory epithelium were similar in both bulbectomized (BE) and bilaterally axotomized (AX) preparations. In vivo… (More)
