Ganglion associated with oculomotor nerve

 # The ganglion which is associated with the oculomotor nerve is:
A. Optic ganglion
B. Ciliary ganglion
C. Superior cervical ganglion
D. None of the above

The correct answer is B. Ciliary ganglion.

Ciliary ganglion is associated with the III nerve, lies between the lateral rectus and the optic nerve. It receives preganglionic sensory parasympathetic fibres from III nerve and sympathetic fibres from superior cervical ganglion. It supplies parasympathetic fibres to constrictor pupillae and sympathetic fibres to dilator pupillae. Otic ganglion is related to glossopharyngeal nerve.
