Abstract

The dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus is traditionally included in the efferent nuclear complex of the glossopharyngeal and vagal nerves. Since this nucleus innervates viscera and also possesses a facial component, it will be discussed in the brain stem vegetative system. Here we focus on the central innervation of the branchiogenic striated musculature in the region of the glossopharyngeal and vagal nerves.
