This could explain why in OB the dendrodendritic connections predominate because most of their interneurons do not have an axon (Crespo et al., 2013; Kato el al., 2013; Nagayama et al.), therefore, the lack of axodendritic or axosomatic connections between the interneurons and the projection neurons (mitral cells and tufted cells), would make it difficult to transport the virus between the latter and the neighboring interneurons.
