Dr. Brand discusses the function of the sensory epithelium.
The function of the sensory epithelium is to allow one to discriminate between gas, liquid, and solid wastes that need to pass. So a small amount of that material is allowed to come in contact with the sensory epithelium. You are then able to interpret whether it’s solid, liquid or gas. That’s combined with the environment you’re in, and you can decide whether to hold it or release it.
