The olfactory bulbs in kiwi are almost in direct contact with the olfactory epithelium, which is indeed well...

Early experimental studies indicated that olfaction does not dominate the telencephalon and that other sensory modalities are represented, particularly in the pallium. We have investigated the intrinsic...

One approach to investigate the sensory bases of their behavior is to examine the peripheral sense organs mediating vision, olfaction, gustation, lateral...

The responses of a population of 30 olfactory receptor cells from spiny lobsters to 8 behaviorally relevant complex types of stimuli at 0.005, 0.05 and 0.5 m M were analyzed using multidimensional scaling to evaluate their potential for coding quality and intensity. A discrimination...
