Neural coding by two classes of principal cells in the mouse piriform cortex

Suzuki, Norimitsu; Bekkers, John


The piriform (or primary olfactory) cortex is a trilaminar structure that is the first cortical destination of olfactory information, receiving monosynaptic input from the olfactory bulb. Here, we show that the main input layer of the piriform cortex, layer II, is dominated by two classes of principal neurons, superficial pyramidal (SP) and semilunar (SL) cells, with strikingly different properties. Action potentials in SP cells are followed by a Ni 2+-sensitive afterdepolarization that...[Show more]
