Neuro Cranial Nerve Reflexes; Afferent and Efferent

CORNEAL REFLEX
Afferent: Trigeminal nerve (Ophthalmic division)
Efferent: Facial nerve (bilateral)

GAG REFLEX
Afferent: Glossopharyngeal
Efferent: Vagus (bilateral)

LIGHT REFLEX
Afferent: Option nerve

JAW REFLEX
Afferent and efferent served by Trigeminal (only reflex that can check both the sensory and motor parts of the Trigeminal).


Seen a lot of questions in Qbank just on this afferent efferent game, LOL .., hope it's easier now
