Spatiotemporal information is differentially conveyed by hippocampal projections to the anterior olfactory nucleus during episodic-like odour memory [article]

Afif J. Aqrabawi, Junchul Kim
2017 bioRxiv   pre-print
We selectively inhibited hippocampal projections to the anterior olfactory nucleus (AON) during behavioural tests of contextually-cued odour recall.  ...  Our results indicate that the spatial and temporal information of episodic-like odour memory is conveyed by topographically distinct hippocampal-AON pathways.  ...  A wooden applicator with a cotton swab tip was positioned 3 262 cm from the floor and 5 cm from one end of the chamber.  ...
