The neuromeningeal trunk gives rise to several meningeal branches, which enter the skull via numerous foramina, including the foramen lacerum, hypoglossal canal, and jugular foramen.


The carotid branch traverses the foramen lacerum with the internal carotid artery to enter the middle cranial fossa.


There are no named branches.

Supplied Structures
