How do we detect the smell of an agarbatti (incense stick)?

 

Answer

Smell of agarbatti is detected in the following manner:

  • The olfactory receptors in the nose receive the stimulus ( smell of agarbatti)
  • Information is collected by the dendrite tips of sensory nerves .
  • Electrical and chemical signals pass from one neuron to another.
  • Signal reaches to the spinal cord
  • The spinal cord transmits signals to the olfactory bulb of the forebrain
  • The brain processes the information based on stimulus and already available information to detect the smell .
  • Thus, we know the presence of stimuli and characteristics.
