innervation of the thryohyoid
True or False: the stylopharyngeus, salpingopharyngeus, and palatopharyngeus serve to shorten and widen pharynx during swallowing and speaking.

supplies blood to the superior portion of the thyroid gland
innervation of the longus colli
motor innervation of middle constrictor muscle and inferior constrictor muscles
(from C2 and C3 roots) supplies the skin covering the anterior cervical region
Thin, broad sheet of muscle within superficial fascia of the neck that is used in facial expression
motor innervation of superior constrictor muscle
small depression of the laryngealpharyngeal cavity on each side of inlet

Bifurcation of common carotid artery into external and internal carotid arteries occurs at what cervical vertebra level?
this layer of the deep cervical fascia forms a sheath around the vertebra and it's surrounding muscles
the largest and most clinically important fascial interspace of the neck because it is the major pathway for the spread of infection
