Nerve: Superior cervical ganglion (sympathetics)

Action: Pupil dilation

Antagonist: Iris sphincter muscle

The radiating muscular fibers of the iris form the Dilatator pupillae; they converge from the circumference toward the center, and blend with the circular fibers near the margin of the pupil.
