Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The inferior cardiac branches (or thoracic cardiac branches) of the vagus nerve, on the right side, arise from the trunk of the vagus as it lies by the side of the trachea, and from its recurrent nerve; on the left side from the recurrent nerve only; passing inward, they end in the deep part of the cardiac plexus.
