Example text

The masticator nucleus also receives a minor bilateral input from the cortex of both cerebral hemispheres to provide for voluntary control of chewing. Axons from the masticator nucleus (lower motor neurons) course laterally through the pons to exit as the motor root on the medial aspect of the sensory trigeminal root. The motor axons course deep to the trigeminal ganglion in the middle cranial fossa and leave the cranium through foramen ovale (Fig. V-5). Just outside the cranium the motor and sensory branches of V3 unite to form a short main trunk, the mandibular nerve.

As a group, they have both motor and sensory* components; however, individual nerves may be purely motor, purely sensory, or mixed (both motor and sensory). The cranial nerves carry six distinct modalities three motor and three sensory. These are somatic motor (which innervate the muscles that develop from the somites); branchial motor (which innervate the muscles that develop from the branchial arches); visceral motor (which innervate the viscera, including glands and all smooth muscle); visceral sensory (which perceive sensory input from viscera); general sensory (which perceive touch, pain, temperature, pressure, vibration, and proprioceptive sensation); and special sensory** (which perceive smell, vision, taste, hearing, and balance).

Taste will not be considered to be a separate (seventh) modality (special visceral afferent) as it is in some text books, but will be included with the special sensory group.
