The Olfactory Bulb
The olfactory bulb is the primary center for transmission of olfactory information to the vertebrate brain. Its functions are (1) to receive and process the information from the olfactory receptor neurons, (2) to send this information to different parts of the olfactory cortex in the forebrain, and (3) to provide for integration and modulation of the information by means of pathways from midbrain and forebrain centers.
