Physiology of nasal cavities and smell types



Cerebrum audio

Three functions are important in the nasal cavity as follows

  1. Warming of air that passes through the total area of the nasal cavities of about 160 m2

  2. Filtration of air

  3. Humidification of air

No single foreign particle larger than 6 m in diameter can enter the lung due to filtration activity in the nasal passages.
