OLFACTORY SPATIAL ATTENTION: NEURAL STRUCTURAL CONNECTIVITY REVEALED

Abstract

Different aspects of spatial neglect, the disability to locate the position of the source of an external stimulus, has been studied frequently especially with regards to lack of response to visual stimuli. A modicum of papers fails to elaborate on that of the auditory field and even less conducted on the extraction of spatial information from olfactory stimuli. In this study we attempted to find a structural connection between the Olfactory Cortex (OC) and Temporoparietal Junction (TPJ), in order to suggest that processed olfactory information is carried from OC to TPJ, where the spatial information of the odor maybe acquired. Positive results were attained in all subjects with a lateralization observed in the right hemisphere.
