In this work, MRI was used to track neural progenitors (NPCs) into the olfactory bulb with 50 μm isotropic resolution. At this resolution and with the aid of manganese, NPCs were identified and quantified in each layer of the bulb. Olfactory bulbs from naive and animals exposed to amyl acetate were compared.
