Caption: Human olfactory system. Computer artwork showing the olfactory bulb (yellow) and receptor cells. The olfactory bulb is situated in the forebrain (prosencephalon). It has many olfactory receptor cells (branching) that project through a layer of bone (beige, centre) into the epithelial lining (pink, lower centre) of the nasal cavity. The receptor cells pick up smell information from molecules inhaled through the nose, and the olfactory bulb is responsible for transmitting these signals to the brain.
