Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
Behav Brain Res 200:287-94. 2009..Finally, the effect of learning on the transmission of information in the vomeronasal system and its relationship to chemosensory information processed by the main olfactory system remain to be elucidated...
- On the scent of sexual attractionPeter A Brennan
Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, Medical School, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TD, UK
BMC Biol 8:71. 2010..A study in the current issue of BMC Biology has identified a mouse major urinary protein as a pheromone that attracts female mice to male urine marks and induces a learned attraction to the volatile urinary odor of the producer...
- Galanin promotes neuronal differentiation from neural progenitor cells in vitro and contributes to the generation of new olfactory neurons in the adult mouse brainOscar Cordero-Llana
Henry Wellcome Laboratories for Integrative Neuroscience and Endocrinology, Dorothy Hodgkin Building, School of Clinical Sciences, University of Bristol, BS1 3NY, UK
Exp Neurol 256:93-104. 2014..Our findings establish the role of galanin as a modulator of neural stem cell function and support the importance of galanin for brain plasticity and repair. ..
- Noradrenaline-induced enhancement of oscillatory local field potentials in the mouse accessory olfactory bulb does not depend on disinhibition of mitral cellsEmilia Leszkowicz
School of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, Medical Sciences Building, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TD, UK
Eur J Neurosci 35:1433-45. 2012..These results suggest that mitral cell disinhibition is not essential for the neural changes in the AOB that underlie mate recognition memory formation in mice...
