Olfactory neurons are cells in the nasal cavity which perceive odors, passing the information along to the brain, and have the ability to regenerate.  They project axons to the olfactory bulb within the brain itself with olfactory ensheathing cells surrounding the growing axons, assisting in their regeneration. The ability of olfactory ensheathing cells to promote neural regeneration has led to
