Fumiaki Imamura, Diego J Rodriguez-Gil

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The vertebrate olfactory bulb is composed of multiple layers, each containing different types of neurons and synapses. The precision of local synaptic circuits in the olfactory bulb forms the foundation of the perception of odors. This chapter is focused on the functional architecture of the olfactory bulb and comprehensively describes the neurons and synapses as well as glial cells in each layer.
