Digastric muscle

Last revised by Travis Fahrenhorst-Jones on 10 Sep 2021

The digastric muscle is composed of two bellies, anterior and posterior, connected by an intermediate round tendon. The two bellies of the muscle have different embryonic origins and hence are supplied by different cranial nerves.
