opthalmic, cavernous sinus
The superficial temporal vessels emerge from the superior border of the p_______ and run ________ to the zygomatic arch
parotid, superficial
Supraorbital branches of the opthalmic artery anastomose with “scalp” branches of the s______ t________ artery as well as with the i_________ branch of the m_________ artery
superficial temporal, infraorbital, maxillary
Sensory innervation of the face is via the _________ nerve
trigeminal V
The Opthalmic division of the Trigeminal nerve V innervates skin of ???, has a major terminal branch ?, which exits the skull via ?
dorsum of the nose, forehead, anterior scalp to the interauricular line...supraorbital nerve....supraorbital notch
The Maxillary division of the Trigeminal nerve V innervates the skin in the shape of a ? from ? to ?, and gives one major terminal branch ? which exits the skull via ?
inverted comma, head of comma between eye and mouth, tail lateral to orbit over zygomatic bone, anterior temporal fossa....infraorbital nerve, infraorbital foramen
The Mandibular division of the Trigeminal nerve V innervates the skin in the shape of a ? from ? up the ? to the ? and gives three important terminal branches, the ???
U, from mandible up the body and ramus of jaw, to intermediate temporal fossa...mental, buccal, auriculotemporal
The three important branches of Mandibular V are ???, arise ? via? and innervate specifically??????
1 mental - inferior alveloar nerve via mental foramen to lower lip, chin over anterior body of jaw,
2 buccal - through buccal fat pad, posterior body and ramus of jaw to full thickness of cheek
3 auriculotemporal - from upper part of parotid gland to superficial zygomatic arch anterior to tragus, TMJ, anterior ext. aud. meatus, ext. ant. tympanic membr, skin over tempora fossa
Trigeminal Neuralgia (tic douloureaux) is what kind of pain?
deep and debilitating within the dermatome
A destructive lesion of CN V will have how much overlap within dermatomes?
The muscles of Facial Expression are
1 orbicularis oculi 2 epicranius 3 orbicularis oris 4 levator anguli oris 5 depressor anguli oris 6 buccinator
The Facial Nerve contains four kinds of fibers, ???
motor, VE, SA, and taste
The Facial Nerve's motor fibers innervate
muscles of facial expression, stapedius, stylohyoid, posterior belly of digastric
The Facial Nerve's VE fibers are parasympathetic to

sub sub pala nas lac
submandibular, sublingual, palatine, nasal, and lacrimal glands
The Facial Nerve's SA fibers provide sensation to
skin of posterior wall of external auditory meatus, posterior half of external tympanic membrane, deep auricle, mastoid region
The Facial Nerve's taste fibers supply
the anterior 2/3 of the tongue
The Facial Nerve gives off five "facial muscle" branches ? and three others ? to glands and tiny muscles
tympanic, zygomatic, buccal, mandibular, cervical...nerve to stapedius, chorda tympani, greater petrosal
The Nerve to the Stapedius arises at ? and innervates ?
second bend of facial nerve in temporal bone to go from medial wall to posterior wall of tympanic cavity, stapedius muscle (dampening loud noises)
The Greater Petrosal Nerves arise at ? and innervate ?

pala nas lac
geniculate ganglion of facial nerve, parasympathetic to palatine, nasal, lacrimal glands
The Chorda Tympani arises ? and provides ? and ?
before facial nerve emerges from stylomastoid foramen, taste to anterior 2/3 tongue, parasympathetic to submandibular and sublingual glands
The Temporal Branch of the facial nerve arises near ?, to innervate ? which functions to ?
lower border of tragus, frontalis muscle (smooth forehead), raise eyebrow
The Zygomatic Branch of the facial nerve arises near ? to innervate ? which functions to ?
lower tragus to outer corner of eye, orbicularis oculi (tearing from lower lid), close eyes tightly
The Blink Reflex's sensory and motor limbs are

parotid duct, buccinator muscle, levator anguli oris, levator labia ori, upper orbicularis oris (sagging cheeks).... show the teeth, smile, pucker, blow out cheeks
The Marginal Mandibular Branch crosses what vessels? to innervate ? and can be tested?
crosses superficial aspect of facial vessels, depressor anguli oris, depressor labia oris, ipsilateral lower lip quadrant orbicularis oris (drooling) .... showing lower teeth, all tests for buccal branches
The Cervical Branch arises ? and descends ? to innervate ? which can be tested?
