Odour enrichment increases adult-born dopaminergic neurons in the mouse olfactory bulb

Bonzano S 1 , Bovetti S, Fasolo A, Peretto P, De Marchis S

Olfactory bulb (OB) dopaminergic neurons are key elements in odour processing. Here, we report that prolonged odour enrichment produces a selective increase of the dopaminergic (TH-positive) population in the OB glomerular layer. This effect is achieved by enhanced integration/survival of adult generated dopaminergic cells and allows dynamic changes in the OB glomerular circuits that could be critical to respond to the environmental incoming information [ read more ]
