cranial nerve V1 is abducens
cranial nerve VI exits through the superior orbital fissure
cranial nerve V1 functions eye movement. is motor.
cranial nerve VII is facial
cranial nerve VII exits through the stylomastiod
cranial nerve VII functions taste (2/3 anterior of tongue), somatosensory information of the ear, muscles facial expression. is mixed.
cranial nerve VIII is auditory (vestibulocochlear)
cranial nerve VIII exits through the internal auditory meatus
cranial nerve VIII functions hearing and balance. is sensory.
cranial nerve IX is glossopharyngeal
cranial nerve IX exits through the jugular foramen
cranical nerve IX functions taste (1/3 posterior), somatosensory info of tongue, tonsil, pharynx. controls some muscles of swallowing. is mixed.
cranial nerve X is vagus
cranial nerve X exits through the jugular foramen
cranial nerve X functions sensory, motor, and autonomic functions of viscera. (glands, digestion, heart rate). is mixed.
cranial nerve XI is accessory (spinal)
cranial nerve XI exits through the jugular foramen
cranial nerve XI functions controls muscles used in head movement. is motor.
cranial nerve XII is hypoglossal
cranial nerve XII exits through the hypoglossal canal
cranial nerve XII functions controls the muscles of the tongue. is motor.
what are the divisions of the trigeminal nerve V1 - opthalmic nerve V2 - maxillary nerve V3 - mandibular nerve
what does the opthalmic nerve exit through superior orbital fissure
what does the opthalmic nerve innervate eye, forehead, ethmoid sinus, sphenoid sinus, frontal sinus, medial part of nose
what does the maxillary nerve exit through foramen rotundem into pterygopalatine fossa, all remaning branches branch from there
the maxillary nerve innervates what upper jaw and cheek
(branches from max) the zygomatic nerve has what two branches zygomatico-temporal nerve, zygomatico-facial nerve
(branches from max) the zygomatic nerve exits through inferior orbital fissure into the zygomatic bone through the zygomatico-orbital foramen. branches from there.
the zygomatico-temporal nerve exits and innervates what exits through the zygomatico-temporal foramen. supplies skin over anterior fourth of temporalis muscle
the zygomatico-facial nerve exits and innervates what exits through the zygomatico-facial foramen. innervates skin overlying lateral surface of zygoma
lesser palatine nerves exit through and supply what exit through lesser palatine foramen. supplies palatine tonsils and soft palate.
