Major Research Accomplishments

Graziadei was the first to suggest, and then to demonstrate, that olfactory receptor neurons were continually generated in vivo and that the population of globose basal cells serves as progenitors for the newly born neurons. He showed that olfactory neuron axons were critical in inducing the formation of their normal target, the olfactory bulb, during normal development. Using embryonic transplants, he showed that these axons could even invade and form synapse-like structures with CNS neurons in a wide range of other brain structures.
