Special visceral efferent

Special visceral efferent (SVE) refers to efferent nerves that provide motor innervations to the muscles of the pharyngeal arches in humans and branchial arches in fish.[1]

Some sources prefer the term "branchiomotor",[2] or "branchial efferent".[3]

The only nerves containing SVE fibers are cranial nerves: the trigeminal nerve (V), the facial nerve (VII), the glossopharyngeal nerve (IX), the vagus nerve (X) and the accessory nerve (XI).[4]
