A and E of cranial n

Afferent and Efferent fibers of cranial nerve

What are general afferent fibers fibers that have their cells of origin in cranial sensory ganglia
what do general somatic afferent (GSA) fibers carry? carry exteroceptive (i.e. pain, temp, and touch) and proprioceptive information from sensory receptors in skin, muscle, tendons, and joints
General visceral afferent(GVA) fibers transmit what? transmit impulses from visceral structures (i.e. hollow organs and glands) within the head neck and in the thoracic and abdominal cavities
What are special afferent fibers fibers arise from neurons found only in the ganglia of certain cranial nerves
special somatic afferent (SSA) fibers convey what? convey sensory information from special sense organs in the eye and ear (i.e. vision, hearing, and equilibrium)
special visceral afferent (SVA) fibers carry what? carry impulses from olfactory and gustatory receptors
General efferent fibers arise from what? from motoneurons in the brain stem and autonomic ganglia
general efferent fibers innervate what collectively, they innervate all musculature of the body, except the branchiomeric muscles that develop in the pharyngeal arches of the embryo
general somatic efferent (GSE) fibers convey what convey motor impulses to somatic skeletal mm (myotoic origin). In the head, the somatic musculature consists exclusively of tongue muscles and extraocular muscles
General visceral efferent (GVE) fibers control what? control smooth muscle and cardiac muscle and regulate glandular secretion. Parasympathetic preganglionic and postganglionic cells and fibers are components of four cranial nerves
Special efferent fibers innervate what? the musculature of branchiomeric origi. Arise from selected cranial nerve nuclei in the brain stem
Special visceral efferent (SVE) fibers consist of what consist of nerve componenets that innervate straited muscles derived from the branchial (pharyngeal) arches. These include muscles of the jaw, of facial expression, and of the pharynx and larynx.
