Smell

Smell is the sense that is concerned with the odor of things. It is perceived by receptors in the olfactory apparatus in the roof of ones nose. Signals here are transmitted along the Olfactory Nerve...

Olfactory glomeruli have a unique structure

Scientists have quantified and mapped the functional units of the olfactory center in the brains of vinegar flies responsible for the perception of odors. The basic units of the olfactory system in th...

The basic units of the olfactory system in the fly brain provide references to their function and ecological relevance

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jena, Germany, have now quantified and mapped the functional units of the olfactory center in the brains of vinegar flies responsible for...

Gastrointestinal disorders involve both brain-to-gut and gut-to-brain pathways

New research indicates that in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or indigestion, there is a distinct brain-to-gut pathway, where psychological symptoms begin first, and separately a distinc...

Pathway linked to slower aging also fuels brain cancer

While a particular metabolic pathway shows potential to slow down the aging process, new research indicates a downside: That same pathway may drive brain cancer.

A 'time switch' in the brain improves sense of smell

When the brain processes olfactory stimuli, it differentiates between similar smells using subtly modulated signals. Brain examinations and behavioral studies in mice have now shown that neurons with ...

Uncovering pathway that makes steroid hormones fast and efficient

How can the group of chemicals known as steroid hormones cause almost instantaneous changes in your body, like hydrocortisone inhalers with asthma? In an interview with UC Science Today, UC Berkeley r...

A 'time switch' in the brain improves sense of smell 

(Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association) When the brain processes olfactory stimuli, it differentiates between similar smells using subtly modulated signals. Brain ex...

Brain cell death in Alzheimer's linked to structural flaw

(Genetics Society of America) Researchers have identified a new biological pathway involved in Alzheimer's disease. In experiments using fruit flies, blocking the pathway reduced the death of brain ce...

From Nose to Brain: Un-Sensed Electrical Currents Applied in the Nose Alter Activity in Deep Brain Structures.

Rules linking patterns of olfactory receptor neuron activation in the nose to activity patterns in the brain and ensuing odor perception remain poorly understood. Artificially stimulating olfactory ne...

Olfaction as a marker for depression.

Olfactory and emotional higher processing pathways share common anatomical substrates. Hence, depression is often accompanied by alterations in olfactory function. These alterations are negative in na...

Lewy body pathology involves the olfactory cells in Parkinson's disease and related disorders.

The "dual-hit" and propagation hypotheses of α-synuclein suggests that the olfactory cells of the olfactory epithelium are among the earliest sites of involvement in Parkinson's disease (PD). We inve...

Localization of α1-2 Fucose Glycan in the Mouse Olfactory Pathway.

Glycoconjugates in the olfactory system play critical roles in neuronal formation, and α1-2 fucose (α1-2Fuc) glycan mediates neurite outgrowth and synaptic plasticity. Histochemical findings of α1-...

Prenatal Alcohol Exposure Affects Progenitor Cell Numbers in Olfactory Bulbs and Dentate Gyrus of Vervet Monkeys.

Fetal alcohol exposure (FAE) alters hippocampal cell numbers in rodents and primates, and this may be due, in part, to a reduction in the number or migration of neuronal progenitor cells. The olfactor...
