Weasel words[edit]

There are several, but the phrase "supposed to be" is highly suspect. Robotsintrouble 05:01, 7 November 2006 (UTC)


Furthermore, there's no way the otic ganglion sends sympathetic fibers from the glossopharyngeal to the parotid gland. This article needs serious attention. Robotsintrouble 05:03, 7 November 2006 (UTC) --No not from the glossopharyngeal- but from the Superior Cervical Ganglion, which is innervated by the sympathetic roots of C1-C4. The parasympathetic branches come from the glossophayrngeal though (CN IX)Altimmons (talk) 05:58, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

I made some changes. Hope everyone agrees 88.218.154.83 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 12:23, 21 January 2009 (UTC).

Filaments Section[edit]

I've disputed this section. Hopefully an anatomist can either confirm or correct the accuracy of these statements, but I know that tensor tympani and tensor veli palatini are derived from the 1st branchial arch which means that they are innervated by the trigeminal (mandibular division to be exact). The otic ganglion, however, receives its preganglionic fibers from the glossopharyngeal nerve which is derived from the 3rd branchial arch. Adamlankford (talk) 02:49, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Anatomy student[edit]

otic ganglion receive preganglionic PSY fibers from the glossopharyngeal nerve (inferior salivatory nucleus) through the lesser petrosal nerve, and sends post synaptic fibers that merge with the auriculo-temporal nerve (V3) to reach the parotid gland post synaptic sympathetic fibers comes from the superior stellate ganglion (found NEXT to C1-c3 - not originates from there though) through the middle meningeal artery reaches the otic ganglion and also joins the auriculo-temporal nerve to the parotid other branches of the otic ganglion (only passing through it without synapsing) nerve to tensor veli palatini (from trigeminal) nerve to tensor tympani (also from trigeminal) nerve to levator veli palatini (from facial- through chorda tympani) looks a little confusing there but most of the information is good —Preceding unsigned comment added by KTL90210 (talkcontribs) 23:17, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

No mention of ears[edit]

I've tagged this article as too technical. For the casual reader a mention of ears would be useful. Perhaps an expert could include a reference somewhere?  Jodosma  09:19, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Much too technical. A first paragraph and preferably the whole lead should be intelligible to the average reader. Of course technical stuff is included further down, but give non-experts a chance to have some idea of what this is all about. Thanks, --Hordaland (talk) 03:23, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
