Molecules in inhaled air bind with receptors on t h e olfactory epithelial cells in t h e a p e x of t h e nose. Olfactory epithelial cells, in turn, stimulate t h e cells of t h e olfactory nerve (CN I ) , which project to t h e olfactory regions of t h e brain ( t h e pyriform a r e a in t h e temporal lobe a n d insula a n d t h e medial olfactory area in t h e subcallosal region of t h e medial surface of t h e frontal lobe) for conscious appreciation a n d interpretation.
