Efferent connections of the olfactory bulb in the opossum (Didelphis marsupialis aurita): a Fink-Heimer study

The Journal of Comparative Neurology
Sara J Shammah-Lagnado, N Negrão


The efferent concentrations of the olfactory bulb (OB) in the opossum (Didelphis marsupialis aurita) were studied by the aid of the Fink-Heimer technique. Following lesions restricted to the OB, ipsilateral degenerating fibers entered the lateral olfactory tract and were treated to terminal fields essentially limited to the outer portion of the plexiform layer (sublamina IA) of the following structures: all the subdivisions of the anterior olfactory nucleus, the rostroventral tenia tecta, the full extent of the olfactory tubercle, the nucleus of the lateral olfactory tract, the anterior portion of the medial amygdaloid nucleus, the whole cortical amygdaloid nucleus (in the posteromedial subdivision of this structure the degeneration was very scanty), and the sulcal, piriform, and lateral entorhinal cortices. Some degree of topographical organization in the OB projections was noticed in the rostral portion of the lateral olfactory tract and within the external and lateral subdivisions of the anterior olfactory nucleus. In another series of experiments, when the lesion also involved the accessory olfactory bulb, heavy terminal degeneration occurred along the whole extent of the medial amygdaloid nucleus and in the posteromedial s...Continue Reading

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.
