Morphological description:   ACT (DA1)-b is a monoglomerular uACTI (unilateral ACT relay interneuron), or an olfactory projection neuron which projects from the glomerulus DA1 of the antennal lobe. It is an olfactory secondary neuron. It seems that it should not an oACT neuron judging from the figure 1, but it can not be distinguished whether it is an iACT neuron or an mACT neuron. One of the other uACTI neurons, ACT (DA1)-a, also have arborization at the glomerulus DA1, while the cell body sites are shifted from each other. This indicates that there is no close correlation between the cell body location and the glomerular arborization.
