Special Visceral Efferent Neurons (Branchiomotor Neurons)
These are seen only in relation to cranial nerves. The cell bodies of these neurons are located in the branchial efferent nuclei of the brainstem. Their axons pass through the fifth, seventh, ninth, tenth, and eleventh cranial nerves to supply striated muscle derived from the branchial arches. The relationship of these neurons to striated muscle is the same as that of somatic efferent neurons.
