Hiroyuki Manabe (Associate Professor, Organization of Research Initiatives and Development), Kazuki Shiotani (Graduate School of Brain Science), Yoshio Sakurai (Professor, Graduate School of Brain Science) and the research group have become the first to find out that the ventral tenia tecta (vTT) plays an important role in odor-guided behaviors. This finding can contribute to further investigation in brain processing of olfactory information, and can be led to finding of the mechanism of smelling disorder caused by COVID-19.
The article about these findings have been published in eLife (published online 04 August 2020, doi: 10.7554/eLife.57268).
