Optogenetic Mapping of Intracortical Circuits Originating from Semilunar Cells in the Piriform Cortex

Choy, Julian; Suzuki, Norimitsu; Shima, Yasuyuki; Budisantoso, Timotheus; Nelson, Sacha; Bekkers, John


Despite its comparatively simple trilaminar architecture, the primary olfactory (piriform) cortex of mammals is capable of performing sophisticated sensory processing, an ability that is thought to depend critically on its extensive associational (intracortical) excitatory circuits. Here, we used a novel transgenic mouse model and optogenetics to measure the connectivity of associational circuits that originate in semilunar (SL) cells in layer 2a of the anterior piriform cortex (aPC). We...[Show more]
