Term Information [More information on facial nerve morphogenesis]

Accession
GO:0021610
Name
facial nerve morphogenesis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
CN VII morphogenesis
Definition
The process in which the anatomical structure of the facial nerve is generated and organized. This sensory and motor nerve supplies the muscles of facial expression and the expression and taste at the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. The principal branches are the superficial opthalmic, buccal, palatine and hyomandibular. The main trunk synapses within pterygopalatine ganglion in the parotid gland and this ganglion then gives of nerve branches which supply the lacrimal gland and the mucous secreting glands of the nasal and oral cavities.
