Abstract

The olfactory system consists of two parallel systems, the main olfactory system and the accessory olfactory system. This chapter focuses upon the neurophysiology of the main olfactory bulb (MOB), the first brain structure in the main olfactory system that processes olfactory signals relayed from olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) in the nasal epithelium. The MOB has long been an attractive model to study cellular mechanisms underlying the encoding, transfer, processing, and decoding of sensory information. The field of olfaction has undergone explosive growth over the last decade. In large part, this growth has been driven by the discovery of odorant receptor genes, how receptor neurons expressing specific odorant receptors map onto the MOB, and the development of mammalian MOB slice preparations. This chapter focuses primarily on neurophysiological studies of the mammalian MOB from the last decade. Readers are referred to other sources that review earlier work on MOB neurophysiology (Mori, K., 1987; Nickell, W. T. and Shipley, M. T., 1992).
