Olfactory bulb main mitral GLU cellSomaNMDA.Paired recordings in slices showed excitatory transmission mediated solely by transmitter spillover between mitral cells. Dendritic glutamate release causes self-excitation via local activation of NMDA receptors, and generates NMDA receptor-mediated responses in neighbouring cells. It is suggested that this simultaneous activation of neighbouring cells by a diffuse action of glutamate provides a mechanism for synchronizing olfactory principal cells (Isaacson JS, 19992 ). In an immunocytochemical study in zebrafish all cells resulted in NMDA receptor mediated labelling (Edwards JG and Michel WC, 20031 ). The pharmacology and kinetics of glutamate sensitivity of mitral cells was studied using flash photolysis in rats (Lowe G, 20033 ).

Olfactory bulb main tufted middle GLU cellSomaNMDA.Paired recordings in slices showed excitatory transmission mediated solely by transmitter spillover between mitral cells. Dendritic glutamate release causes self-excitation via local activation of NMDA receptors, and generates NMDA receptor-mediated responses in neighbouring cells. It is suggested that this simultaneous activation of neighbouring cells by a diffuse action of glutamate provides a mechanism for synchronizing olfactory principal cells (Isaacson JS, 19992 ).
