In the mammalian olfactory system, there exist several parallel specialized subsystems, one of which is the necklace olfactory system. This subsystem has several interesting features in its anatomical organization and physiological responses. Its olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) in the olfactory epithelium project their axons to a set of glomeruli in the caudal olfactory bulb, forming the shape of "beads-on-a-string" and thus being named as "necklace glomeruli." Physiologically, necklace OSNs… CONTINUE READING
