Olfactory bulb

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The olfactory bulb is a structure in the brain that is responsible for the sense of smell. It sits outside the blood-brain barrier.

Human herpesvirus 6 has an affinity for leukocytes and nervous tissue, especially the olfactory bulb tissues,[1] from which it is thought to disseminate to other parts of the brain.
