Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The cervical branch of the facial nerve runs forward beneath the Platysma, and forms a series of arches across the side of the neck over the suprahyoid region. This nerve innervates the posterior belly of the Digastric muscle and the Stylohyoid muscle.

One branch descends to join the cervical cutaneous nerve from the cervical plexus. Also supplies the platysma muscle.[1]
