The development of the cytoarchitecture and axonal connections of the central olfactory system were studied in fetal and neonatal rats from E16. In contrast to neocortical development, the olfactory cortex lacks a distinct cortical plate. In the piriform cortex and the olfactory tubercle the cellular laminae emerge simultaneously, while in the anterior olfactory nucleus, there are morphogenetic gradients from superficial to deep as well as from caudal to rostral which parallel the known… 

Development of Axonal Connections in the Central Olfactory System

Elucidation of the ontogeny of olfactory-mediated behavior must include consideration of the development of the central representation of the olfactory system, including the olfactory bulb and the

The development of lamination of afferent fibers to the olfactory cortex in rats, with additional observations in the adult

TLDR
The observations presented here confirm and extend the previous demonstration that in the adult the two projections are essentially nonoverlapping throughout the olfactory cortex.

The mouse olfactory peduncle. 3. Development of neurons, glia, and centrifugal afferents

TLDR
Results indicate that considerable growth occurs in the peduncle from postnatal day (P)10–P20, with reduced expansion from P20 to P30, and no evidence was found for the addition of new projection or interneurons during the postnatal period.

Immunohistochemical changes in the anterior olfactory nucleus of the developing rat.

TLDR
Results from an immunohistochemical examination of specific neuronal and glial populations in postnatal rats represent some of the first analyses of the maturation of specific cellular phenotypes within this large neural region.

Olfactory tract transection in neonatal rats: evidence for mitral cell regeneration and restoration of functional connectivity with its targets.

TLDR
Supporting evidence is provided for the restoration of the functional connections between the olfactory bulb and the piriform cortex at 120 days after Olfactory tract transection in neonatal rats.

Chronotopic organization of olfactory bulb axons in the lateral olfactory tract

TLDR
The arrangement of axons in a tract can have a specific effect on the organization of functional neuronal circuits and this special assembly of the axons explains the nontopographic relationships between the Olfactory bulb and the lateral olfactory tract axons.

Development of the mammalian main olfactory bulb

TLDR
This Review synthesises current knowledge of prenatal, postnatal and adult olfactory bulb development, focusing on the maturation, morphology, functions and interactions of its diverse constituent glutamatergic and GABAergic cell types.

TLDR
The afferent olfactory connections of the lateral hypothalamus of the rat were studied and produced a restricted pattern of degeneration, which coincided with the path of degenerating axons.

Association and commissural fiber systems of the olfactory cortex of the rat. I. Systems originating in the piriform cortex and adjacent areas

TLDR
The association and commissural fiber systems arising in the olfactory cortical areas caudal to the Olfactory peduncle have been studied utilizing horseradish peroxidase as both an anterograde and a retrograde axonal tracer.

The topographic organization of associational fibers of the olfactory system in the rat, including centrifugal fibers to the olfactory bulb

TLDR
This study analyzed the topographic organization of the associational fibers within the olfactory cortex of the rat, by using the autoradiographic method to label selectively the fibers arising in each area.

Association and commissural fiber systems of the olfactory cortex of the rat II. Systems originating in the olfactory peduncle

TLDR
Experiments utilizing retrograde and anterograde axonal transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) have demonstrated that each of these parts of the anterior olfactory nucleus possesses a unique pattern of afferent and efferent connections with other Olfactory areas.

The laminar distribution of intracortical fibers originating in the olfactory cortex of the rat

TLDR
The autoradiographic method for tracing axonal connections was used to identify the laminar distribution of intracortical fibers originating in the olfactory cortical areas of the rat, which can be divided into two major fiber systems with differentLaminar patterns of termination.

TLDR
The afferent projections from the olfactory bulb and the prepiriform cortex have been studied in the rat using the autoradiographic method for demonstrating axonal connections, and the cytoarchitectonic characteristics of these areas have been described.

The differential projections of the olfactory bulb and accessory olfactory bulb in mammals

TLDR
Three species were studied, the rabbit, opossum and rat, and the topographic segregation of the areas of termination of the olfactory and accessory ofactory (vomeronasal) projections is suggestive of a functional dichotomy in the organization of the wreath system.
