Basic information

The olfactory bulb is a group of nuerons which communicate with nuerons and bascially functions as the brains smelling center. The combination of odors and create reponses in the sensory nuerons these sensory nuerons then transmit this information to the olfactory bulb. The brain then can interpret these smells. The interpretation of these smells eventually leads to the storage of these smells and memory of this chemical responses.

Within the olfactory bulb is a very important type of cell. The Olfactory bulb mitral cell. The olfactory bulb mitral cell is of great imporatance.


According to an article in the comparative journal of nuerobiology the structure of the mitral cell in the olfactory bulb has been deduced by using goldfish.

You can replace this image with a picture of the cell. To upload a new image, go to Upload file on the left menu. Make sure that you cite where the image was taken from and give attribution. Provide a link to the source when possible.This is where you put a short paragraph to introduce the salient features of this neuron. What should everyone know about this cell if they don't read any farther.

Neuronal Type: Sensory Neuron, Motor Neuron, local interneuron, projection neuron, etc...

[edit]Anatomy This is where you put information related to the anatomy of the neuron.

Where is the Cell body located?

What is the axon projection pattern?

How many neurons of this type are there in the nervous system?
