Student drawn image

This image demonstrates the position of the vomeronasal organ in relation to the olfactory bulb and tract. It was compiled from several web sources.

The vomeronasal organ is the organ of pheromone detection. Detection leads to behavioural and endocrinological changes[1]. The human vomeronasal organ is a rudimentary structure and its function is still being actively debated, it is perhaps thought to have only a minor role in chemical communication between humans[2]. The vomeronasal organ plays a much larger role in other animals such as amphibia, reptiles and nonprimate mammalsCite error: Invalid <ref> tag; invalid names, e.g. too many
