X 1000. {Bruiiii.) processes of the olfactory cells, much more delicate than the peripheral, are directlycontinued, as the axis-cylinders, into the subjacent nonmedullated nerve-fibres withinthe tunica propria, from which they pass through the cribriform plate to enter thebrain and end in the arborizations within the olfactory glomeruli of the bulbusolfactorius (page 1152). The tunica propria is differentiated into a superficial and a deep layer bythe adenoid character of the stratum immediately beneath the epithelium. Thesuperficial layer, from .015-.020 mm. thick, consists of closely packed irregularlyround cells, resembling lymphocytes, and meagre bundles of delicate connectietissue. The deep layer, on the other hand, contains robust bundles of fibro-elastictissue and relatively few cells. A distinct membrana propria is wanting within theolfactory region.
