14 B. Cádiz-Moretti et al. difference with these previous reports. Consistent with these observations, no sexual differences have been found in the AOB or MOB projections in rats (Dr. MartinezMarcos, University of Castilla-LaMancha, personal communication). In addition, the reported similarities between mice and rats make it unlikely that the described convergent projections from the AOB and MOB to amygdaloid structures are different in males, although experimental confirmation of this possibility awaits further study.

Nowack et al. Introduction The recessus olfactorius is a distinct area of sensory epithelium within the nasal cavity of many anuran amphibians (frogs and toads). It is clearly isolated from both the main olfactory organ and the vomeronasal organ. Since its first descriptions about 80 years ago (Du Toit 1933; Rowedder 1937; Helling 1938; Slabbert 1945) few investigations have addressed this subject, and most details about the recessus olfactorius remain undiscovered. The only current study touching the recessus olfactorius describes an immunoreactivity of this “novel sensory epithelium” for the neuronal marker NCAM (Jungblut et al.
