Flashcards in Visceral Efferent Pathways to the Submandibular and Sublingual Salivary Glands Deck (9):
1

Which division of the visceral nerve system will pass through the parotid gland to innervate the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

the parasympathetic nerve system

2

How will sympathetics reach the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

by way of a neurovascular plexus around the facial artery

3

What C.N. are involved in the parasympathetic pathway to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

branches of the facial nerve and the mandibular division of the trigeminal

4

Which branch of C.N. VII will convey preganglionic parasympathetic VE fibers from the temporal bone in the pathway to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

chorda tympani nerve

5

The chorda tympani nerve will join which nerve?

the lingual nerve of the mandibular division of the trigeminal

6

The lingual nerve is a branch of which nerve?

the mandibular division of the trigeminal

7

Which branch of the mandibular division of the trigeminal will convey preganglionic parasympathetic VE fibers in the pathway to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

the lingual nerve

8

Preganglionic parasympathetic VE fibers will synapse in which ganglion along the pathway to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

the submandibular ganglion

9

What nerves carry postganglionic parasympathetic VE fibers to the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands?

glandular nerves
