The facial motor nucleus is a collection of neurons in the brainstem that belong to the facial nerve cranial nerve VII. These lower motor neurons innervate the muscles of facial expression and the stapedius. The nucleus is situated in the caudal portion of the ventrolateral pontine tegmentum. Its axons take an unusual course, traveling dorsally and looping around the abducens nucleus , then traveling ventrally to exit the ventral pons medial to the spinal trigeminal nucleus.

If you say someone's getting on your nerves, you could just cut to the chase and say they're getting on your sciatic nerve —this nerve is plenty big enough for both minor and major irritations. It's the largest nerve in the body, running a lengthy route from each side of your lower spine, deep into your buttock, wrapping around to the back of the thigh and into the foot. Here are 13 things we learned about this important part of the nervous system. No wonder this nerve hurts when it gets irritated—at its biggest point, it's one heck of a large nerve, says Fishman.
Your cranial nerves are pairs of nerves that connect your brain to different parts of your head, neck, and trunk. There are 12 of them, each named for their function or structure. This is based off their location from front to back. Their functions are usually categorized as being either sensory or motor.
Occasionally we discover veterinary journal articles about one or a few cavalier King Charles spaniels being diagnosed with veterinary disorders rarely found in the breed. These disorders may not be categorized under any specific genetic disorder, and they may not be inherited at all. We include them here just to enable cavalier owners and veterinarians to be able to find them in the event their cavaliers are diagnosed similarly. Also, by means of a summary, we are fortunate that in the UK in , a veterinary clinic database has been surveyed to list the "Prevalence of disorders recorded in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels attending primary-care veterinary practices in England" , which includes 3, CKCSs. It lists numerous disorders and ranks them as they were diagnosed in the treatment of cavaliers in England from to
