What Happens in Vagus. . .

Vagus Nerve - Also known as Cranial Nerve X or the 10th cranial nerve. Provides innervation to pharynx, larynx, trachea, lungs, heart, esophagus, and most of the intestinal tract. I think it's safe to say that the vagus nerve is pretty damn important.

Is there a medical word you would like to know the definition of? Leave a comment and try to stump me. I promise I'll try to define it without references and I'll let you know if I couldn't do it.
