A fundamental property of the nervous system in all animal species is the transformation of sensory stimulation into neural activity, leading to endocrine and behavioral changes. Among the sensory systems, the olfactory system stands out due to its molecular complexity, detection capacity and the modulation of innate behaviors. However, little is known about how this system detects, processes and interprets chemosignals from the environment... Note: The complete abstract is available with the full electronic document (AU)
