Olfactory neurons - recovering scent

Cellular Level1,2

Olfactory neurons in the olfactory epithelium present cilia into the nasal passage. Odor molecules bind to olfactory receptors on the cilia and trigger an action potential inside the olfactory neuron. This signal is then transmitted to synapses of tufted cells in the glomeruli in the olfactory bulb.
