Abstract : By means of microelectrodes, impulse discharges of the olfactory cells elicited by various odors were recorded. Sixteen odorants among 122 were found to elicit electropositive EOGs in the excised olfactory epithelium of the bullfrog. They can also produce positive EOGs in the degenerated olfactory epithelium. The ionic mechanism of the positive EOCs elicited by these odors was studied in the normal and degenerated olfactory epithelia. (Author)
