dorsal oblique extraocular muscle
dorsal oblique extraocular muscles, superior oblique muscle
Extraocular muscle innervated by the trochlear nerve. The dorsal rectus and dorsal oblique muscles have overlapping insertions at the scleral-corneal junction on the dorsal side of the adult eye, though they have distinct insertion sites in 5dpf fish. The dorsal oblique originates separately from the rectus muscles. The unsegmented paraxial head mesoderm contributes to the dorsal oblique muscles. All the oblique extraocular muscles originate together from the anterior ethmoid plate.
