Q. Dong, J. Zhou, L. J. Zhuang, D. Wang & P. Wang
Response features of mitral cells in the olfactory bulb were examined using principal component analysis to determine whether they contain information about odorant stimuli. Using microwire electrode array to record from the olfactory bulb in freely breathing anesthetized rats, we recorded responses of different mitral cells to saturated vapor of anisole (10 mM), carvone (10 mM), isobutanol (10 mM), citral (10 mM) and isoamyl actate (10 mM). The responses of single mitral cells to the...
