(Asap) Science explains how to engineer a zombie virus

The key is to engineer a virus similar to rabies that attacks the olfactory nerve, inducing “zombified” behavior leaving other areas of the brain unharmed.

Following the nerves back reaches the ventromedial hypothalamus, amygdala, and frontal cortex associated with appetite, memory, and problem solving/morality/impulse-inhibition, respectively.

The result: “super hungry, aggressive, brain-dead beings that can’t recognize family, friends, or control actions other than to feed!” Sounds like zombies. Great. More real life monsters.
