The tensor veli palatini is innervated by the medial pterygoid nerve, which is a branch of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve

Which of the following is correctly matched with its action?

Correct! Wrong!

The tensor veli palatini tenses the soft palate and opens the mouth of the auditory tube during swallowing and yawning

Which of the following is NOT a type of lingual papilla?

Correct! Wrong!

The four types of lingual papillae are the vallate papillae, foliate papillae, filiform papillae, and fungiform papillae

Which of the following muscles is NOT innervated by the hypoglossal nerve?

Correct! Wrong!

The hypoglossal nerve innervates the four intrinsic muscles of the tongue in addition to the following three extrinsic muscles of the tongue: genioglossus, hyoglossus, and styloglossus. The vagus innervates the palatoglossus, which is both an extrinsic tongue muscle and a palate muscle

Which of the following tongue muscles is correctly paired with its action?

Correct! Wrong!

The genioglossus depresses the tongue and assists in protrusion. The hyoglossus depresses and retracts the tongue. The styloglossus retracts the tongue and draws it up for swallowing. The palatoglossus elevates the posterior part of the tongue. The superior and inferior longitudinal muscles curl the tip and sides of the tongue and shorten it. The transverse narrows and elongates the tongue, assisting in protrusion. The vertical flattens and broadens the tongue, assisting in protrusion
