-thyroid and cricoid cartilages and intrinsic laryngeal cartilages (larynx)


Where are the motoneuron cell bodies and sensory cell bodies of cranial nerves found?

-motor: cell bodies in the brain

In the trunk, all sensory nerves are derived from neural crest cells. What about some sensory neurons in the head?

-neural crest cells and special areas of ectoderm known as neurogenic ectodermal placodes


Skeletal muscles that develop in each arch is innervated by _________.

-a specific mixed cranial nerve


What provides sensory innervation of the face?

-ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular divisions of the trigeminal nerve


Which cranial nerves are associated with each arch?

-Arch I: CN V3
-Arch 2: CN VII
-Arch 3: CN IX
-Arch IV, VI: CN X


Give the muscles, skeletal elements, and cranial nerve from arch 1

-mandible, malleus, incus, sphenomandibular ligament


Give the muscles, skeletal elements, and cranial nerve from arch 2

-ocularis oculi, orbicular oris, buccinator, plastysma, digastric posterior belly, stylohyoid, stapedius
-hyoid (superior part), styloid process, stapes, stylohyoid ligament
