olfactory bundle

A fibre system, described by E. Zuckerkandl as Reichbundel, descending from the transparent septum in front of the anterior commissure toward the base of the forebrain; it contains precommissural fibres of the fornix, fibres from the septum to the hypothalamus and innominate substance, as well as fibres ascending to the septum and hippocampus from the hypothalamus and midbrain; it bears no special relation to the sense of smell.
