Olfactory bulb main mitral GLU cellDistal apical dendriteAMPA.Intracellular recordings: CNQX blocks early component of EPSP elicited by olfactory nerve volley nerve volley (Berkowicz DA et al, 1994 [turtle]1 ). Electrophysiology data: DNQX attenuates early and late excitatory components in peristimulus time histograms of mitral cell unit responses to olfactory nerve volleys (Ennis M et al, 1996 [rat]2 ). Intracellular recordings: CNQX blocks early component of EPSP response to olfactory nerve volley (Chen WR and Shepherd GM, 1997 [rat]3 ). Paired whole-cell recording revealed reciprocal excitatory connections between mitral cells. Pharmacological analysis suggested that it could be mediated by both AMPA and NMDA receptors (Urban NN and Sakmann B, 20024 ).
Olfactory bulb main mitral GLU cellDistal apical dendriteNMDA.Intracellular recordings: AP5 blocks late component of EPSP elicited by olfactory nerve volley (Berkowicz DA et al, 1994 [turtle]1 ). Electrophysiology data: AP5 attenuates delayed excitatory components in peristimulus time histograms of mitral cell unit responses to olfactory nerve volleys (Ennis M et al, 1996 [rat]2 ).
