Anterior olfactory nucleus

Name: Anterior olfactory nucleus
Description: Laminated structure lying caudal to the olfactory bulb in all vertebrates. Based on Nissl stains, the AON has been divided into two basic zones: “pars externa,” a thin ring of cells that encircles the rostral end of the olfactory peduncle, and the remainder, sometimes referred to as “pars cruralis” or “pars principalis”[1]
Abbreviation: AON, AO
Is part of: Telencephalon, olfactory peduncle[1]
Super-category: Nucleus of CNS

Organism: Vertebrata

Neuronames ID ( what's this?): 262
Topography defining Criteria: The structure can be found behind the olfactory bulb in all vertebrates. Since in many primates the bulb is located at the end of a long stalk below the frontal cortex, the AON is often difficult to locate and may appear only as islands of cells in the stalk rather than a clearly defined ring. In the macaque monkey, it may be as small as only twelve cells in some cross-sections.
