Olfactory Epithelium. This is a low magnification of olfactory epithelium from the roof of the nasal cavity. A seromucous Bowman's gland is illustrated in the lamina propria. Its duct opens onto the surface. The secretions of these glands provides a solvent for the olfactory stimulus and washes the olfactory receptors to prevent stagnation of the odor.
