  32. muscles that open rima glottidis
    posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA), innervated by recurrent laryngeal nerve and running from arytenoids down to posterior surface of cricoid - abducts vocal folds
  33. muscles that close laryngeal aditus for swallowing
    aryepiglottic muscle, a continuation of the oblique arytenoids, which is innervated by recurrent laryngeal nerve and runs from arytenoid along opening of aditus
  34. layers of muscles from superficial to deep from chin to tongue and their innervations
    posterior belly of digastric (CNVII), mylohyoid (CNV3), geniohyoid (C1 via CNXII), genioglossus (CNXII - in palsy, no longer extends tongue out, increasing risk of choking)
  35. chorda tympani origin, course and target
    emerges from pontomedullary junction with CNVII as nervus intermedius with axons from NTS (taste) and superior salivary nucleus (visceral motor), divides from NI at the geniculate ganglion and joins the lingual nerve (branch of V3) to supply the tongue (anterior 2/3 taste) and sublingual, submandibular (secretomotor)
  36. what are tarsal plates of the eye?
    dense fibrous tissue bands which strengthen the eyelids with embedded tarsal glands which prevent complete evaporation of the tear film
  37. muscle that opens eyelids and innervation
