Scientific notes
Libelle of note
New term for the peripheral part of Nervus facialis. Alternatively, the various parts of the Facial nerve may be mentioned (Pars meatica, Pars labyrinthica, Pars tympanica, Pars pyramidalis. Pars mastoidea, Pars extracranialis) as suggested by Ronald Bleys, Utrecht; see Lang J 1992 Klinische Anatomie des Ohres. Springer, Vienna-New York). The Nervus facialis proprius would become: Nervus facialis, Pars extracranialis.
