The first and secondary olfactory centers in the olfactory pathway in Drosophila are organized into neuropil structures called glomeruli. The antennal lobe (AL), the first olfactory center in larval Drosophila, is organized in 21 glomeruli. Each AL glomerulus receives innervation from a specific olfactory sensory neuron (OSN), and is therefore identifiable anatomically by the position of the OSN terminal. Olfactory projection neurons (PNs) send a dendrite to a single AL glomerulus and an axon… CONTINUE READING
