Cathecolaminergic Neurons in the Olfactory Bulb
The olfactory bulb (OB) is an expedient region for analyzing neuronal organization in the central nervous system, as it displays a simple and distinctly laminar cytoarchitecture consisting of a relatively small number of neuron types, but is also so rich in chemical and neuroactive substances located in a variety of neuron types in distinct layers.1
