Is a cell with protruding cilia inside the Olfactory epithelium. The cilia or dendrites protrude into a layer of mucus where odorahe main olfactory bulb and the accessory olfactory bulb. It is made up of the following three layers of cells.
Glomeruli are spherical structures that are separated by periglomerular cells and make up the first/outer layer of the olfactory bulb. It is in these structures that dendrites of mitral cells make contact with the olfactory nerves.
Is one part of the brain that processes odour information. It is located just behind the olfactory bulb. It passes information to several other parts of the brain, including the contralateral olfactory bulb, the piriform cortex, ipsilateral bulb and ipsilateral cortex.
Like visual system and other articles, this can be easily merged into the main "System" article (which is quite small), benefitting readers by decreasing needless fragmentation and centralising this useful information. Tom (LT) (talk) 19:56, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Tom (LT) I went ahead and "merged" them. I put it in quotes because I found the olfactory transduction article almost entirely incomprehensible, so I re-wrote it and added it as a subsection of this article and didn't really take anything from the original version. —PermStrump(talk) 07:35, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
