WHAT DOES TRIGEMINAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

trigeminal

Trigeminal nerve

The trigeminal nerve is a nerve responsible for sensation in the face and certain motor functions such as biting and chewing. It is the largest of the cranial nerves. Its name derives from the fact that each trigeminal nerve, one on each side of the pons, has three major branches: the ophthalmic nerve, the maxillary nerve, and the mandibular nerve. The ophthalmic and maxillary nerves are purely sensory. The mandibular nerve has both cutaneous and motor functions. Sensory information from the face and body is processed by parallel pathways in the central nervous system. The motor division of the trigeminal nerve is derived from the basal plate of the embryonic pons, while the sensory division originates from the cranial neural crest.
