Olfactory cortex horizontal cell

Name: Olfactory cortex horizontal cell
Description: Medium-size interneuron in the superficial layer I of the olfactory cortex, with dendrites oriented parallel to the surface, and axon descending to layer II. They presumably receive excitatory input from the LOT fibers and are inhibitory in layer II.
Synonym(s): Horizontal cell (olfactory), olfactory horizontal cell
Has role: Intrinsic neuron role
Abbreviation: H
Super-category: Neuron
Id: nifext_118
Organism: Vertebrata
