The nasal mucosa (Terminologia histologica: Mucosa nasi) has 2 different parts, the respiratory region (Regio respiratoria) with typical ciliated pseudostratified epithelium (respiratory epithelium) an an olfactory region (Regio olfactoria) with sensory smell cells. These cells show a bulbous protrusion on their surface with long cilia. Bowman's glands are located in the submucosa. Their secretion contributes to the nasal mucos most of which is syntetised by epithelial cells.
