Example text

In accordance with this anatomical organization, functional experiments using electrophysiology and optical imaging have shown that each odorant activates a unique combination of neurons that are widely distributed without apparent spatial preference (Illig and Haberly 2003; Poo and Isaacson 2009; Rennaker et al. 2007; Stettler and Axel 2009). Moreover, an individual piriform neuron receives inputs from random collections of olfactory bulb glomeruli, and adjacent neurons respond to structurally different odorants, suggesting a discontinuity in the receptive field profile (Stettler and Axel 2009).

A chemotopic map was observed in the olfactory bulb, where different chemical properties of an odorant molecule, such as the carbon chain length or particular functional groups, activated different populations of glomeruli. Therefore, odorant information is spatially represented in the olfactory bulb, where each odorant molecule is encoded by the activation of a unique combination of glomeruli (for review, see Mori et al. 2006). It is still unclear if this organization is conserved in humans. Maresh et al.

Most of the projections are ipsilateral, although a subset of neurons also sends axons from the olfactory bulb to the controlateral cortex. The olfactory cortex is composed of several anatomically distinct areas, including the piriform cortex, olfactory tubercle, anterior olfactory nucleus, cortical amygdala, and lateral entorhinal cortex (Carmichael et al. 1994; Shipley and Ennis 1996). Each of these regions in turn projects to other brain areas. 8 Organization of the olfactory system. Olfactory information detected in the olfactory epithelium is transmitted to the olfactory bulb, which in turn is connected to the primary olfactory cortex, composed of the anterior olfactory nucleus, olfactory tubercle, piriform cortex, amygdala, and entorhinal cortex.
