Interesting thing about that is I've heard most of the damage to that part of the skull resulting from impact behind the head rather than in front of it. I sorta remember a biology class in '99, (been a while, so wait for confirmation), that the teacher explained that many people lose their sense of smell after a minor car accident from impact from the rear. The more recent neocortex region of the head is more jagged and less smooth than the encasing of the brain to the rear, and impact from the rear causes the head to jolt forward, letting the front of the skull sever the olfactory nerves, resulting in a loss of smell following even a minor car accident.Quote:
