Abstract

In mammals, olfactory sensory neurons project their axons exclusively to the ipsilateral olfactory bulb. It remains unclear how odor information interacts between the two hemispheres of the brain. In this issue of Neuron, Yan et al. describe the precise interbulbar connection through the anterior olfactory nucleus pars externa (AONpE), which links contralateral isotypic olfactory columns.
