Neuronatomy Multiple Choice Set 3


The cutaneous nerve which parallels the course of the external jugular vein on the sternocleidomastoid muscle arises from the ventral primary rami of:
  1. C-2 & C-3
  2. C-3 & C-4
  3. C-1 & C-2
  4. C-1, C-2 & C-3
  5. C-3 & C-4


The large sensory nerve which accompanies the superior laryngeal artery through the thyrohyoid membrane is a branch of the:
  1. Glossopharyngeal nerve
  2. Recurrent laryngeal nerve
  3. Superior laryngeal nerve
  4. Inferior laryngeal nerve
  5. Ansa cervicalis


The levator veli palatini muscle is innervated by the vagus nerve, indicating that this muscle arises from the:
  1. 1st branchial arch
  2. 2nd branchial arch
  3. 3rd branchial arch
  4. 4th branchial arch
  5. Hyoid arch


Paralysis of the entire facial musculature on one side can result from lesions of the facial nucleus in the pons because lesions at a higher (supranuclear) level will spare the orbicularis oculi and frontalis muscles.
  1. Both statement and reason are correct and related
  2. Both statement and reason are correct but NOT related
  3. The statement is correct but the reason is NOT
  4. The statement is NOT correct but the reason is an accurate statement
  5. NEITHER statement nor reason is correct


Each of the following is noted in unilateral facial paralysis except:
  1. Displacement of the mouth
  2. Drooping of the corner of the mouth
  3. Loss of taste on the posterior one-third of the tongue
  4. Drooping of the upper eyelid
  5. Blinking of the eyelids does not occur


When a patient was asked to open his mouth widely, it was noted that the lower jaw deviated to the right. Assuming nerve involvement, which of the following cranial nerves would be implicated ?
  1. Vagus
  2. Glossopharyngeal
  3. Accessory
  4. Trigeminal
  5. Hypoglossal


The cell bodies of the neurons which mediate the sense of taste in the anterior two-thirds of the tongue are located in the:
  1. Submandibular ganglion
  2. Geniculate ganglion
  3. Pons
  4. Semilunar ganglion
  5. Cerebrum


The fact that the middle pharyngeal constrictor muscle was derived from the fourth branchial arch would indicate that this muscle received its nerve supply from the:
  1. Trigeminal nerve
  2. Hypoglossal nerve
  3. Facial nerve
  4. Glossopharyngeal nerve
  5. Vagus nerve
