Olfactory nerve carries the sense of smell to the sensory strip present in the cerebrum. The sensory areas are present in the parietal lobe of the cerebrum. The stimuli of smell reaches the mammillary bodies present in the hypothalamus. This produces olfactory reflexes and emotional responses to odour.
