    Head & Neck

    Advertisements



    Which of the following tongue muscles is NOT innervated by the hypoglossal nerve?
    a. genioglossus
    b. palatoglossus
    c. hyoglossus
    d. styloglossus
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    Correct!

    The palatoglossus is the tongue muscle not innervated by the hypoglossal nerve. It is innervated by the vagus via pharyngeal plexus.
