major artery of the infratemporal fossae?
maxillary artery => learn all the branches and where they go
pterygomaxillary fissure contains?
ptergypalatine fossa for the pterygpalatine ganglion, it has a spot for greater petrosal n. and deep petrosal n.
branch of maxillary to deep face?
after it passes through the sphenopalatine foramen. sphenopalatine artery.
temporalis m attaches?
origin @ temporal fossa to coronoid process of mandible
medial pterygoid attaches? action?
goes from medial part of the lateral plate to the angle of mandible. moves jaw laterally
lateral pterygoid attaches?
right next to the TMJ on the pterygoid fovea and the articular disk
where medial pterygoid m attaches
foramen ovale has
auriculotemporal nerve that wraps around the middle meningial artery (which is a branch of the maxillary a)
greater palatine branches go across to?
they come through the palatine foramina. they pass anteriorly to the hard palate. the Smaller branch goes to the Soft palate

sphenomandibular ligament covers the inferior alveolar nerve (gives off nerve to mylogyoid) and inferior alveolar artery
where are the four articular disks?
two in TMJ, two in sternoclavicular joint
if someone has TMJ, what nerve relays pain?
auriculotemporal, auriculotemporal, masseteric nerves

review: sensory nerve to cheek
buccal n., anterior to the lingual nerve (v3)
how does chordae tympani get to its final destination
comes through the foramen ovale with the inverior alveolar nerve(v3) and takes a little detour over to the lingual nerve
