The epithelium of the olfactory mucosa is of columnar, pseudostratified type and is also called a neuroepithelium because of the presence of the olfactory receptor neurons. However the olfactory neurons are classified as the paraneurons now and then accordings to authors.

The neural components found in the mam-malian nose are outlined and analyzed briefly, that is, 1) the olfactory epithelium proper, 2)the Jacobson's vomeronasal organ, 3) the septal organ of Masera, 4) the terminal endings of the nervus terminalis, 5) the terminal endings of the trigeminal nerve.
