Olfactory cortex

Name: Olfactory cortex
Description: Aggregate brain region defined as those areas of cerebral cortex receiving direct synaptic input from the olfactory bulb (Price, 1973). The most recognized structure is the piriform cortex (prepyriform area), but other areas are often included, e.g., the olfactory tubercle.

CommentSome authors have considered the anterior olfactory nucleus to be part of the olfactory cortex. We have not added it here, as currently it is considered to be a nucleus, but could reasonably include it.
