Facial nerve lingual branch
The lingual nerve is a branch of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve ( CN V3), which supplies general sensory innervation (not the gustative one) to the anterior 2/3 of the tongue. It also carries fibers from the facial nerve (CN VII), which carries taste.

Description:Lingual nerve Medically reviewed by Healthline Medical Team on February 5, The lingual nerve is located near the sides of the tongue specifically below the lateral pterygoid muscle , and is responsible for its senses of taste and touch. The lingual nerve provides senses to the tongue's front two-thirds, as well as to the underside that surrounds it. It branches off the mandibular nerve and twists around the submandibular duct to reach the tongue. The facial nerve's chorda tympani is one of the nerve fibers the lingual nerve carries to the skull, a process by which the lingual nerve allows taste to be transmitted to the brain.
