Map of brain connections provides insight into olfactory system

The processing of sensory information in the brain involves a complex network of neural connections specific to each type of sensory input. Much is known about the neural wiring associated with most s...

Finding the target: How timing is critical in establishing an olfactory wiring map

The human nose expresses nearly 400 odorant receptors, which allow us to distinguish a large number of scents. In mice the number of odor receptors is closer to 1000. Each olfactory neuron displays on...

Signaling pathway may explain the body clock's link to mental illness

(Wiley) Alterations in a cellular signaling pathway called cAMP-CREB may help explain why the body clocks of people with bipolar disease are out of sync, according to a new European Journal of Neurosc...

Sensory systems: Staying silent

Olfactory receptors signal through G protein βγ subunits to silence the expression of other olfactory receptors within a single olfactory sensory neuron.

Olfactory Function in Schizophrenia and Family Members

Could olfactory deficits be a useful marker of schizophrenia risk? This study analyzed current evidence for olfactory dysfunction in schizophrenics, close relatives, and youth at-risk for psychosis....

Variations in Neuronal Networks Could Explain Traumatic Brain Injury Outcomes

A team of researchers at the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University has discovered that hidden differences in the properties of neural circuits can account for whether animals are behavior...

Study suggests nestin+ cholinergic neurons may have closer connection to olfactory bulb neurons

Dr. Yuhong Zhao and co-workers from Sun Yat-sen University in China explored the projection of nestin+ neurons to the olfactory bulb and the time course of nestin+ neurons in the medial septum-diagona...

The endocannabinoid system controls food intake via olfactory processes

This study shows that activation of cannabinoid type-1 (CB1) receptors in the olfactory bulb increases odor detection and food intake in hungry mice. The authors show that this function is mediated by...

Electrophoretic particle guidance significantly enhances olfactory drug delivery: a feasibility study.

Intranasal olfactory drug delivery provides a non-invasive method that bypasses the Blood-Brain-Barrier and directly delivers medication to the brain and spinal cord. However, a device designed specif...

Olfactory-related cortical atrophy is associated with olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson's disease.

Olfactory dysfunction is often associated with Parkinson's disease (PD) and can precede characteristic motor symptoms by several years. Olfactory-related cortical atrophy has been reported in PD, alth...

Olfactory Receptor and Neural Pathway Responsible for Highly Selective Sensing of Musk Odors.

Musk odorants are used widely in cosmetic industries because of their fascinating animalic scent. However, how this aroma is perceived in the mammalian olfactory system remains a great mystery. Here,...

Long distance interferon signaling within the brain blocks virus spread.

Serious permanent neurological or psychiatric dysfunction may result from virus infections in the central nervous system (CNS). Olfactory sensory neurons are in direct contact with the external enviro...

Roles of olfactory system dysfunction in depression.

The olfactory system is involved in sensory functions, emotional regulation and memory formation. Olfactory bulbectomy in rat has been employed as an animal model of depression for antidepressant disc...
