Researchers say the randomness of the piriform cortex plays a critical role when it comes to distinguishing between similar odors.
CSHL researchers document how neuroblasts make their journey through the rostral migratory stream to their target destination in the olfactory bulb.
A new imaging system has allowed researchers to map whole brain distribution of senile plaques in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. The technique could help propel Alzheimer's research and speed up the development of new treatments.
Max Planck researchers have made a groundbreaking discovery that helps explain why people with Parkinson's often report an impaired sense of smell. They discovered the total volume of glomeruli in the olfactory bulb of Parkinson's patients is only half of that found in people without the disease.
Loss of the sense of smell is a common symptom of Parkinson's disease that often precedes motor deficits. A new study may provide clues as to why the sense of smell diminishes in people with Parkinson's.
Researchers at UCSD have isolated two microRNA molecules that are responsible for mediating neurotransmission switching from aversion to attraction, and vice versa.
A study recently published in Neuron may provide new insights into how memory forms in the brain. Researchers discovered acquired olfactory memory is associated with synaptic long term potentiation, which can last for at least two weeks.
A new study reports long distance neural connections can target pools of stem cells in their niche and stimulate them to produce subtypes of olfactory bulb neurons.
A new study supports olfactory testing as an early method to detect those at risk of developing dementia.
According to researchers, REM sleep is suppressed by adenosine acting on a specific type of subreceptor in the olfactory bulb.
