The frontal nerve is the largest branch of the ophthalmic nerve(V1), and may be regarded, both from its size and direction, as the continuation of the nerve.
It enters the orbit through the superior orbital fissure, not running within the tendinous ring, and runs forward between the Levator palpebræ superioris and the periosteum.
Midway between the apex and base of the orbit it divides into two branches, supratrochlear nerve and supraorbital nerve.

Famous quotes containing the word nerve:
“The American people is out to get the kaiser. We are bending every nerve and every energy towards that end; anybody who gets in the way of the great machine the energy and devotion of a hundred million patriots is building towards the stainless purpose of saving civilization from the Huns will be mashed like a fly. Im surprised that a collegebred man like you hasnt more sense. Dont monkey with the buzzsaw.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
