DUQUE PARRA, Jorge Eduardo; MARIN ARIAS, José Fernando  and  PELAEZ CORTES, Félix Jhon César. Olfactory Stria in the Human Being and Proposal for Inclusion in Terminologia Anatomica of Olfactory Intermediate Stria. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.4, pp.1411-1413. ISSN 0717-9502.

The human olfactory stria are two divisions of the olfactory tract, traditionally identified as medial and lateral olfactory stria, recognizable at the level of the olfactory trigone, and associated with the piriform cortex. The aim of this work was to study taking as reference thirty six fresh brain's olfactory nerves, the presence of more than two olfactory stria and check for intermediate olfactory stria. It is concluded that the olfactory stria are variable in number from two to three and this should be included in the Terminologia Anatomica as the term stria intermedia.

Keywords : Intermedia stria; Lateral stria; Medial stria; Olfactory nerve; Olfactory stria.
