Distribution (m, muscle); C. Lesion results. (Fig. 5-4). The oculomotor (III cranial nerve [CN]) rootlets pass ventrally and emerge in the wall of the interpeduncular fossa, just medial to the cerebral crus. The oculomotor nerve innervates five muscles: four external ocular muscles (superior, medial, and inferior rectus, and inferior oblique) and the levator of the superior eyelid.

The axons of the gamma motor neurons innervate the intrafusal fibers of the muscle spindles, which are sensory organs that are stimulated by lengthening or stretching the muscle. The intrafusal fibers are located at the poles of the muscle spindles. When activated by the gamma motor neurons, the intrafusal fibers increase the tension on the muscle spindle receptors, thereby decreasing the thresholds of these receptors. The gamma motor neurons play an important role in muscle tone. BRAINSTEM LOWER MOTOR NEURONS All cranial nerves, except the olfactory, optic, and vestibulocochlear nerves, contain axons of lower motor neurons.
