Learning anatomy/Nose


The parts of the nose are:

  • Nasion
  • Root
  • Bridge
  • Ala
  • Apex
  • Nostril
  • Columella
  • Nasal cavity
    • Vestibule
    • Olfactory region
    • Respiratory region


The air goes inside the nasal cavity. The nasal cavity warms the air and traps dust particles with tiny hairs and mucous. The smell of things in the air is caused by the olfactory tract which sends signals to the brain about the smell.
