Through the anterior foramina
Motor innervation of facial muscles for expression come from what CN? and how does it get to the face?
Facial (CN VII)

Through the stylomastoid foramen in the back.
What innervates the cutaneous posterior of the head/scalp?
What are the divisions of the trigeminal nerves (V)?
V1 - Opthalmic
V2 - Maxillary
V3 - Mandibulary

What are the cutaneous branches of the Maxillary division of the Trigeminal nerve (V)?
What are the cutaneous branches of the Mandibular division of the Trigeminal nerve (V)?
Parts of the External Ear are innervated by what CN's?
5, 7, 9, 10,
Ear ache can be caused how?
Pain related to disease along the distribution of CN V, VII, IX, and/or X.
What are the branches of the Facial nerve (VII)?
Marginal Mandibular
What is a similar branch that is both shared by Trigeminal (V) and Facial (VII) nerves?
Describe the orientation of facial nerves (CN VII) in respect to the parotid gland.
Nerves go through the gland
What artery goes to the brain?
Internal carotid
The internal carotid can anastamose with the external carotid via what artery?
Opthalmic artery
The external and internal jugular vein is separated by what muscle?
What are the three major veins entering the face/scalp?
1. Internal jugular vein
2. External jugular vein

What are the five layers of the scalp?
1. Skin
2. Connnective Tissue (Dense)
3. Aponeurosis
4. Loose connective tissue
5. Periosteum
