The olfactory bulb glomerulus is, anatomically, a well-defined neuronal network. However, little is known about the role of individual cell types during glomerular activation by odour. Consequently, the interpretation of glomerular activation imaging, whether with cellular approaches (two-photon microscopy to image single/multiple cells, blood flow of tissue oxygenation) or macroscopic approaches (fMRI, fUltrasounds) remains unclear. During the rotation, the project will be to use two-photon microscopy to investigate the role of a specific cell type in odour perception.
