Over the last five years it has become feasible to study the olfactory transduction process by the patch-clamp technique. Valuable contributions have come from Maue and Dionne (1987), Firestein and Werblin (1987,1989), Frings and Lindemann (1988), Zufall et al.(1989), Schild (1989), Schmiedel-Jacob et al.(1989), and Trotier (1986). From these studies we now know more about the ionic channels and the whole-cell voltage-gated currents present in these cells, though their physiological role has not been clarified in detail.
