olfactory entorhinal cortex
The term olfactory entorhinal cortex refers to the part of the entorhinal area defined on the basis of connectivity. It is the rostral portion, which receives a projection from the olfactory bulb. The projection is most evident in the rat and mouse. Much less so in the macaque, and even less in the human ( Price-1990 ).
