Muscle Innervation

Visualize the nerve supply to any muscle, and follow its path back to the nerve origin.

Access Innervation

To see a muscle’s innervation, select the muscle from the model. The Infobox for that structure will appear on the left of the screen. Under the title of the structure you will see the option to view the innervation for that muscle.

Select Innervation

Select the Innervation icon to see the options for viewing that muscle’s innervation path. Choose between Isolating or Hiding the path. The names of the innervating nerves will also appear below these options, and will be highlighted in blue on the model.

Isolate the path

Choosing to isolate the path will hide all structures not associated with the path.

Highlight the path

Choosing to highlight the path will fade all visible structures other than the path and muscle.

Exploring the model

The model remains fully interactive and you may rotate, zoom, and pan to find your preferred angle. You can also select structures within the path.
