Facial NerveFacial Nerve Recording sites: Place the active recording over the orbicularis oris at the corner of the mouth, over the orbicularis oculi on the outer canthus of the eye, over the frontalis in the forehead, or over the nasalis muscle on the nasolabial fold. Place the reference electrode on the nose. Either a needle or surface electrode may be used for recording.
