Description

The superior branches (ascending branches ; rami superiores) of the transverse cervical nerve pass upward to the submaxillary region, and form a plexus with the cervical branch of the facial nerve beneath the Platysma; others pierce that muscle, and are distributed to the skin of the upper and front part of the neck.
