• pheromone
  • The amygdala (in olfaction) processes pheromone , allomone , and kairomone (same-species, cross-species, and cross-species where the emitter is harmed and the sensor is benefited, respectively) signals. (wikipedia.org)
  • cDNA
  • Employing a combination of genome analysis, RT-PCR experiments and screening of an antennal cDNA library we have identified a cDNA which encodes the GABA B -R1 receptor of Heliothis virescens . (ijbs.com)
  • V1AR is also known as: V1a vasopressin receptor antidiuretic hormone receptor 1A SCCL vasopressin subtype 1a receptor V1-vascular vasopressin receptor AVPR1A vascular/hepatic-type arginine vasopressin receptor Human AVPR1A cDNA is 1472 bp long and encodes a 418 amino-acid long polypeptide which shares 72%, 36%, 37%, and 45% sequence identity with rat Avpr1a, human AVPR2, rat Avpr2, and human oxytocin receptor (OXTR), respectively.

  • patterns
  • In vertebrates, these input patterns are processed in the olfactory bulb (OB) by neuronal circuits consisting of principal neurons, the mitral/tufted (MT) cells, and a variety of local interneurons. (jneurosci.org)
  • protein
  • This protein encodes a protein with ankyrin repeats and is closely related in sequence to the mammalian TRPV ion channels. (wikipedia.org)
  • functional
  • This monitoring can be accomplished by noninvasive means such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) or electroencephalography (EEG), or by more invasive means such as electrophysiology, the use of electrodes to record the electrical activity of single neurons or groups of neurons. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent studies used in vivo recordings, optogenetics, and other methods to analyze the mechanisms by which odor information is encoded and processed in the olfactory system, the functional connectivity within and between olfactory brain areas, and the impact of spatiotemporal patterning of neuronal activity on higher-order neurons and behavioral outputs. (jneurosci.org)
  • The principles governing functional connectivity within and between olfactory brain areas are therefore an important subject of research in olfaction. (jneurosci.org)
  • specific
  • Many neurons in the rat and mouse hippocampus respond as place cells: that is, they fire bursts of action potentials when the animal passes through a specific part of its environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • brain
  • The mucus overlying the epithelium contains mucopolysaccharides, salts, enzymes, and antibodies (these are highly important, as the olfactory neurons provide a direct passage for infection to pass to the brain). (wikipedia.org)
  • expression
  • Avpr1a transcripts are diurnally expressed 12 hours out of phase from vasopressin expression in vasopressin and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide neurons of the suprachiasmatic nucleus in both vasopressin-normal Sprague-Dawley rats, as well as vasopressin-deficient Brattleboro rats.
