[edit] NS neuron

The picture has been uploaded. The olfactory bulb granule cell is an inhibitory interneuron. It can be found in all vertebrates. It is located in the olfactory bulb in the forebrain. This neuron has receptors, channels, and transmitters.These are the most numerous inhibitory interneurons in the olfactory bulb.

Neuronal Type: inhibitory interneuron

[edit] Anatomy

 1. Equivalent dendrite   
2. Distal equivalent dendrite   
3. Middle equivalent dendrite   
4. Proximal equivalent dendrite   
5. Soma   


Where is the Cell body located? The cell body is located at one end of the cell while the dendrites are at the other end.


[edit] Molecular profile Neurotransmitter: ____________ Unique molecular markers: ______________

[edit] Physiology Does the neuron have particular physiological properties that make it unique?

[edit] Synaptic Connections [edit] Synaptic Inputs What neurons or brain areas does this neuron get input from?

[edit] Synaptic Outputs What neurons or brain areas does this neuron output onto? The olfactory bulb granule cells target their output synapse to dendrites of mitral cells and tufted cells.

[edit] Spiking properties Does the neuron exhibit characteristic firing properties? The neuron exhibits spike timing and bursting.

[edit] Behavior What type of behaviors is this neuron involved with? These neurons are involved in processing odor information within the olfactory bulb.
