1

___pharynxs makes the pharynx (3)

nasopharynx, oropharynx, laryngopharnx

2

manipulation of food by the tongue is CN

XII

3

three constrictors of the larynx

superior (originate on pterygomandibular ligament with buccinator m), middle (on hyoid), inferior (on thyroid/cricoid cartilage) they come together in the back and make the pharyngeal raphe

4

pharyngeal fascia

forms the internal fascial layer of the constrictors

5

only muscle from CN IX

stylopharyngeus muscle that goes between superior and middle contrictor and goes along the stylohyoid lig. its a landmark to find the nerve

6

salpingopharyngeus m.
forms?

forms a fold where the eustacian tube comes into the nose

7

where is pterygoid hamulus

sphenoid bone

8

palatoglossus innervation

CN X

9

styloglossus innervation

CN XII

10

review: t/f sympathetic chain is in the carotid sheath.

FALSE. its posterior

11

thyroid cartilage pocket

piriform recess. because the thyroid cartilage is two plates. posteriorly there is no thyroid cartilage, but the cricoid does

12

pharyngeal plexus

sensory part, motor part (sensory is mostly IX, motor is IX and X)

13

gangion on lingual n.

submandibular ganglion

14

vallecula

the pocket on either side of the epiglottis

15

embryonic germ layer of lens

ectoderm

16

outer fibers of CN III

parasympathetic fibers. the deep ones are GSE

17

insertion of temporalis

coronoid process

18

key to cross sections of the head

20

wraps around mylohyoid

submandibular gland

21

innervation of SCM

22

inferior constrictor

constrictor of laryngeal level near piriform recess. CN X.
