    Odor enrichment sculpts the abundance of olfactory bulb mitral cells

    The olfactory bulb: a metabolic sensor of brain insulin and glucose concentrations via a voltage-gated potassium channel

    State-dependent sculpting of olfactory sensory neurons is attributed to sensory enrichment, odor deprivation, and aging

    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor modulation of Kv1.3 channel is disregulated by adaptor proteins Grb10 and nShc
