Dr. Najeeb: Neuroanatomy – Facial Nerve 1/4 – USMLE Step 1

Published on May 21, 2012

Copied from Dr. Najeeb’s You Tube page:

Neuroanatomy – The facial nerve is the seventh (VII) of twelve paired cranial nerves. It emerges from the brainstem between the pons and the medulla, and controls the muscles of facial expression, and functions in the conveyance of taste sensations from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and oral cavity. It also supplies preganglionic parasympathetic fibers to several head and neck ganglia.
