Clusters of secretagogin-expressing neurons in the aged human olfactory tract lack terminal differentiation

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Expanding the repertoire of molecularly diverse neurons in the human nervous system is paramount to characterizing the neuronal networks that underpin sensory processing. Defining neuronal identities is particularly timely in the human olfactory system, whose structural differences from nonprimate macrosmatic species have recently gained momentum. Here, we identify clusters of bipolar neurons in a previously unknown outer „shell“ domain of the human olfactory tract, which express secretagogin, a…
