Innervation of the tongue, palate, pharynx & larynx with mnemonic
We are learning innervation of some muscles today! Yaay!
Glossal means pertaining to or near the tongue.. That’s your starting point.
All muscles ending in “glossus” are supplied by hypoglossus
Why? Because palate!
All musles of the palate are supplied by the vagus
..Except tensor veli palatani.
Why? Because it’s a tensor!
All muscles in the head beginning with “tensor” are supplied by V3.
Pharynx and larynx is made easy by the X mnemonic =)
I’m watching Doctor Who.. Anatomy is like The Silence. You forget it after having the encounter! Make sure Silence doesn’t fall on your Anatomy knowledge xD
