Magnified View of the Occipital Condyle. The facial and vestibulocochlear nerves can be identified running into the IAC and the loop of the AICA. Through the jugular foramen, the lower cranial nerves exit the endocranium. The hypoglossal nerve travels in the hypoglossal canal, located in the occipital condyle.
