I really liked how I completed this work because I choose a word that I really liked, and I also really liked how I did it explaining what it does and where it is located. I was challenged by this because I forget when it was due so I had to go to SAS, it was also challenging because I haven't touched this subject in months so I had a hard time re-finding my knowledge about this nerve. I got stuck on the part that I had to give background information about the nerve because again, I have not touched the subject in months, but I got unstuck after I went into my Anatomy site and found the information. I think that one core value that I showed during this project was Curious, because I seeked out something that once learned and I re-learned it.
I think that this Wiki can teach me something in life because I want to be a Doctor one day and I need to learn about these nerves so I can use this to teach myself in the future. I also think that this knowledge can be applied to other subjects like Science and Science. (Hehe, don't know what other subject this can relate too). And Finally I think that it would be useful for people to know about these things, because it tells you a little bit about what the word means.
Glossopharyngeal N. (Cranial nerve 9)
Translation: Glosso: Tongue, Pharyngeal: Pharynx
Defenition: Cranial nerve #9
Example sentence: I have a nerve in my brain that is called the Glossopharyngeal nerve or the Cranial nerve 9!
The Glossopharyngeal nerve controls the Pharynx of the tounge. The Glossopharyngeal nerve is also responsible for the swollowing motion of the tounge. It also supplies the reflex control of the heart. If you look at your Brain from the bottom you will see a pair of rootlets right beside the Vagus nerve those rootlets are the Glossopharyngeal nerve, or in a more simplified way too say it the Glossopharyngeal nerve is in the Posterior Cranial Fossa. Its main compositions are Motor, General seensation, Sepecial sensation, and Parasympathetic. Parasympathetic means, “pertaining to that part of the autonomic nervous system consisting of nerves and ganglia that arise from the cranial and sacral regions andfunction in opposition to the sympathetic system, as in inhibitingheartbeat or contracting the pupil of the eye.” For the Glossopharyngeal nerve its Motor CNS connections is in the Medula Oblongata (Nucleus Ambiguus). The Glossopharyngeal nerve also monitosr the blood pressure. It also monitors your blood Oxygen and your Carbon Dioxide. What I like about this nerve is that it does so many little things that are so important, and those little things actually keep the body running, and if you didn't have these things your body would die.
