Despite increasing knowledge about the biophysiology of the human olfactory system, understanding of the development of this pathway in humans lags considerably behind that of other vertebrates. Developmental studies have largely concentrated on the generation of cell types in the olfactory epithelium during the first trimester, while detailed ultrastructural observations usually describe the adult morphology. In this review, we have shown that contrary to what has been generally assumed, the… CONTINUE READING
