How can you clinically test for CN XII damage?

Have the patient stick their tongue out. This involves contraction of the genioglossus muscle. Damage to CN XII unilaterally will result in deviation to the side that is damaged. That side of the tongue will be atrophied also.

A image thumb

Does the glossopharyngeal supply taste sensation over a slightly larger area than it does somatic sensory? Explain.

Yeah, its somatic sensation ends at the sulcus terminalis, but the taste innervation extends anteriorly to the anterior line of the vallate. Check it...
