VII), consists of a large motor root in combination with the intermediate nerve (nervus intermedius). The motor root innervates the muscles of facial expression, including those moving the scalp, and other muscles developing from the second pharyngeal arch (see chapter 12). Nervus intermedius has two branches of special interest: (1) the greater petrosal nerve that carries secretomotor fibers to the lacrimal gland and to the mucusproducing tissues of nose and palate; and (2) the chorda tympani whose secretomotor fibers supply both the sublingual and the submandibular salivary glands, and whose sensory fibers transmit taste from the anterior two-thirds of 52 CONCEPTS IN ANATOMY the tongue.

Transversus abdominis, the third and deepest layer of the anterolateral abdominal wall); (2) innermost intercostal, placed deep to internal intercostals in the lateral thoracic wall; and (3) subcostalis, crossing lower intercostal spaces in back. The three parts are connected by endothoracic fascia; it lines the thoracic wall internally and rests on parietal pleura from which it can be separated only with difficulty. There is no conclusive electromyographic evidence that external and internal intercostal muscles have opposing functions in the human, even though their fibers pass in opposite directions.

They also are the source of the spinal dura mater, the outer, tough covering of the spinal cord. Myotomes, meanwhile, seed myoblasts, the precursor cells of skeletal muscle, their tendons, and connective tissue. Be aware, however, that only about 270 of the 600+ muscles of the body originate from paraxial somites; the limb muscles have a different developmental history, as do the muscles of the head. The cells of dennatomes are programmed to lay down dermis, the connective tissue layer of the skin.
