The present studies began an examination of the process by which unilateral odor deprivation results in a 25% reduction in the size of the olfactory bulb. Rat pups had a single naris occluded on the day after the day of birth (Day 1) and were tested at several early postnatal ages. Dopamine (DA) levels were measured to gauge the effects of deprivation on a transmitter system which is intrinsic to the bulb, while norepinephrine (NE) concentrations were assessed to determine how deprivation… CONTINUE READING
