Otic ganglion (anatomy)

There are 4 parasympathetic ganglia in the head (on each side), and the otic ganglion is one of them. What I really want to do is explain how the glossopharyngeal nerve (CN IX) innervates the parotid gland. Let's try. We'll also come across the trigeminal nerve (CN V), the facial nerve (CN VII), the mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve, and various other nearby goodies.
