Sample text

Anatomy The facial nerve leaves the facial nucleus in the brain stem and passes through the internal auditory meatus beside the VIIIth cranial nerve. After the geniculate ganglion, it runs across the middle ear in the Fallopian canal and then turns vertically where it supplies the stapedius muscle before leaving the temporal bone through the stylomastoid foramen. It enters the parotid gland where it divides into five main branches to the muscles of facial expression. In the middle ear, it also supplies secretomotor fibres to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands, and taste fibres to the anterior two-thirds of the tongue via the chorda tympani.
