The medial geniculate nucleus is involved with which process?
The MGN is involved with audition
Which cranial nerve do I used for mastication?
What are the other functions of this nerve?
CNV Trigeminal nerve controls mastication.
CNV is also responsible for somatosensation for the face, meninges and tops of head, PLUS somatosensation for the anterior 2/3 tongue!
CNV Trigeminal nerve is named for it’s 3 main somatosensation innervations, but it also innervates a fourth area for somatosensation, which sits inside one of the main 3 areas. What is this?
CNV innervates somatosensation for the anterior 2/3 of the tongue as well as the face, meninges and top of the head.
