Flashcards in Olfactory System Deck (6):
What cells detect odors
The bipolar cell bodies of the primary afferent neurons (SSA) are found in the surface epithelium.
How can cells that detect odors be damaged following head trauma?
Head trauma can sever olfactory nerve fibers passing through the cribiform plate - the olfactory nerve passes through this area.
Fibers of which neurons make up the olfactory nerve?
Bipolar primary afferent neuron
What neuron makes up the olfactory tract?
What structures make up the primary olfactory cortex?
Amygdala, hippocampal complex, entorhinal cortex.
