|Brain: Olfactory tract|
Scheme of rhinencephalon. (Olfactory tract visible at left.)
The olfactory tract is a bundle of axons connecting the mitral and tufted cells of the olfactory bulb to several target regions in the brain, including piriform cortex, amygdala, and entorhinal cortex. It is a narrow white band, triangular on coronal section, the apex being directed upward.
Destruction to the olfactory tract results in ipsilateral anosmia.
