Queston #8695Note

Adie’s pupil-> ipsilateral damage to the ciliary ganglion or axons

pupil constriction

– efferent pathway: cholinergic parasympathetic fibers from cell bodies in the EW nucleus which then travel along CN3 and synapse in the ciliary ganglion, and then proceed along the short ciliary nerves

– ACH activates muscarinic receptors on the ciliary body (lens accomodation) and pupillary sphincter (pupil constriction).
