(Max-Planck-Gesellschaft) Victoriapithecus had a small brain relative to its body size with an olfactory bulb about three times as large as that in present-day monkeys.
(Center for Genomic Regulation) CRG scientists in Barcelona have undertaken to map the neural circuitry involved in the conversion of olfactory inputs into navigational behaviors in the fruit fly larv...
In animals, numerous behaviors are governed by the olfactory perception of their surrounding world. Whether originating in the nose of a mammal or the antennas of an insect, perception results from th...
Two groups have identified metabolic changes caused by therapies targeting the PI3K pathway that could both explain and provide a solution for the compounds' poor performance in the clinic.
(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) At a three-year follow-up, patients with spinal cord injury who were randomized to a clinical trial that transplanted cells from ...
Decreased ability to identify specific odors can predict abnormal neuroimaging results in blast-injured troops, according to a new study. The olfactory system processes thousands of different odors, s...
To study the acute relationship between olfactory function and traumatic brain injury (TBI), cognitive functions and outcome.
Most people find it profoundly difficult to name familiar smells. This difficulty persists even when perceptual odor processing and visual object naming are unimpaired, implying deficient sensory-spec...
Natural prion diseases of ruminants are moderately contagious and while the gastrointestinal tract is the primary site of prion agent entry, other mucosae may be entry sites in a subset of infections....
To explore the frequency of posttraumatic olfactory (dys)function 1 year after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and determine whether there is a relationship between olfactory identification and ne...
The olfactory groove schwannoma is a quite rare tumor. We report a case of a 49-year-old woman with an olfactory groove schwannoma attached to the cribriform plate without olfactory dysfunction. She h...
