Primary sensory areas

The primary sensory areas are the main cerebral areas that receive sensory information from thalamic nerve projections.

Though some areas of the human brain that receive primary sensory information remain poorly defined, each of the five sensory modalities has been recognized to relate to specific groups of brain cells that begin to categorize and integrate sensory information.

  • Olfaction: Olfactory cortex is found along the ventral surface of the frontal lobe. Olfaction is the only sensory system that is not routed through the thalamus.
