The ulnar nerve does NOT do which of the following?

The ulnar nerve gives rise to articular branches that innervate the elbow joint and muscular branches that innervate the flexor carpi ulnaris and medial half of the flexor digitorum profundus. The palmar cutaneous branch innervates the skin of the medial part of the palm, and the dorsal cutaneous branch innervates the posterior surface of the medial part of the hand and digits. The deep branch innervates the hypothenar muscles, adductor pollicis, interossei, and the 3rd and 4th lumbricals.
