Nasal Cavity Olfactory Region Histology
Olfactory epithelium cells
- Olfactory cells
- Sustentacular cells - located mainly in the superficial cell layer of the epithelium (difficult to distinguish from olfactory cells).
- Basal cells - identified by their location.
- Cilia are not visible
- goblet cells are absent from the olfactory epithelium.
- olfactory axon bundles (lightly stained, rounded areas) connected to olfactory cells.
- Bowman's glands - (small mucous glands, olfactory glands) function to moisturise the epithelium.
