The olfactory bulb is a structure of the vertebrate forebrain involved in olfaction, the perception of odors.
Famous quotes containing the word bulb:
“... until the shopkeeper plants his boot in our eyes,
and unties our bone and is finished with the case,
and turns to the next customer, forgetting our face
or how we knelt at the yellow bulb with sighs
like moth wings for a short while in a small place.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
