Neuroscientists discover new cell type that may help brain maintain memories of smells

...g the odor begins. One of the puzzling aspects of olfaction is how our perception of an odor can evolve over multiple sniffs. Because of their unique ability to maintain their activity between sniffs, Blanes cells may provide the missing link needed to answer this critical question. While there are relativ...

...ing areas involved in motivation and drug craving, olfaction ?the sense of smell ?and temperature regulation, to name a few.
