Caption: Human olfactory system. Computer artwork showing the olfactory bulb (top) full of olfactory neurons (nerve cells), and an olfactory receptor cell (yellow, vertical). The olfactory bulb is situated in the forebrain (prosencephalon). It has many olfactory receptor cells that project into the epithelial lining (pink) of the nasal cavity. The receptors (bottom, long, thin) embedded in the membrane of the receptor cells pick up smell information from molecules inhaled through the nose. This information is transmitted to the olfactory bulb and sent as a nerve impulse to the brain.
