Abstract

The olfactory epithelium of the Rat is studied by transmission electron microscopy. Two types of bipolar sensory cells are described. One (A type) is homologous to the receptors already described in vertebrates. The other (B type) is less frequently found and shows different morphological characteristics. Another peculiar epithelial cell-type (C type) was occasionally observed.
