On either side of the crista galli, the cribriform plate is narrow and deeply grooved; it supports the olfactory bulb and is perforated by foramina for the passage of the olfactory nerves.
The anterior border articulates with the spine of the frontal bone and the crest of the nasal bones.
The cribriform plate is ossified partly from the perpendicular plate and partly from the labyrinths.

The cribiform plate of the ethmoid is apparently a linguistic redundancy, since both terms refer to the sieve-like nature of the braincase at the roof of the nasal cavity.
The sieve-like holes in the cribiform permit the axons of olfactory receptor neurons in the nasal mucosa to synapse directly with the mitral neurons in the olfactory bulbs.
The ethmoturbinals are associated with the cribiform plate.

The ethmoid bone is exceedingly light and spongy, and cubical in shape; it is situated at the anterior part of the base of the cranium, between the two orbits, at the roof of the nose, and contributes to each of these cavities.
plate, on either side of the crista galli, is a small fissure which is occupied by a process of dura mater.

 Ethmoid bone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ethmoid bone is very delicate and is easily injured by a sharp upward blow to the nose, such as a person might suffer by striking an automobile dashboard in a collision.
The force of a blow can drive bone fragments through the cribiform plate into the meninges or brain tissue.
Such injuries are often evidenced by leakage of cerebrospinal fluid into the nasal cavity, and may be followed from the nasal cavity to the brain.

 CribiformPlate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
As you can see, the cribriform plate (A) contains many perforations which connect the nasal cavity and the cranium.
Through these perforations, numerous olfactory nerves pass from the olfactory epithelium of the ethmoid turbinates to the olfactory bulbs of the brain.
Occassionally, a rip-roaring nasal infection may gain access through the cribiform plate and set up a meningitis in the animal.

The olfactory nerve exits the skull through the cribiform plate of the ethmoid bone--an infection in the nasal cavity may be carried to the olfactory bulb by the nerves that are passing through the cribiform plate.
The crista galli is a ridge on the ethmoid bone between the two sides of the cribiform plate; it provides an anchor for the falx cerebri.
It is made of the greater wings of the sphenoid and squamous part of the temporal bones laterally and the petrous part of the temporal bones posteriorly.

 Skull 4a
Immediately anterior to the sphenoid bone is the ethmoid bone, which forms the roof of the nasal cavity and a portion of the partition (nasal septum) dividing the nasal cavity into the right and left sides.
The superior surface of the ethmoid bone forming the roof of the nasal cavity is called the cribriform plate.
The perpendicular plate of the ethmoid extends inferiorly and forms the superior part of the nasal septum.

Occurs in areas of thinness of bone and adherence of the dura to the skull: cribiform plate, posterior wall of frontal sinus, sphenoid, sella floor or the great sphenoidal wing (large lateral development of sinus).
Some authors feel all cases with compound fractures, a defect within the posterior wall of the frontal sinus, the cribiform plate and ethmoidal region, or fractures of the sphenoid should be operated upon even if rhinorrhea has stopped spontaneously due to high risk of recurrence and meningitis.
During ENT operations: endoscopic sinus surgery(bone often dehiscent in long standing or severe polypoid disease), septoplasty (must not crack the cribiform plate- most often occurs using the Jansen-Middleton forceps and a rocking motion) Fistulas produced unintentionally during ENT operations can usually be closed from the same approach.

Each nerve cell has a receptor site that reacts with an odorant generating an impulse that is sent through the cribiform plate to the olfactory bulb in the brain.
Unlike the sense of taste where taste buds send a message from nerve cell to nerve cell to nerve cell to nerve cell to the brain…the sense of smell is directly transmitted.
One end of a neuron receives stimulus from an odorant; the other end of the neuron reaches across the cribiform plate directly into the brain.

Basal skull fractures involve the floor of the skull, including fractures of the cribiform plate, frontal bones, sphenoid bones, temporal bone and occipital bones.
