add your own mnemonic to the list!

  Pterygoid muscles (function):
Look at how your jaw ends up when saying first syllable of 'Lateral' or 'Medial'
  • "La": your jaw is now open, so Lateral opens mouth.
  • "Me": your jaw is still closed, so medial closes the mandible.
  Eye rotation by oblique muscles:
I Love S&M
  • Inferior oblique: Lateral eye rotation.
  • Superior oblique: Medial eye rotation.
  Extrinsic muscles of tongue [for pro soccer fans]:
Paris St. Germain's Hour
  • Palatoglossus
  • Styloglossus
  • Genioglossus
  • Hyoglossus

? PSG is a French soccer team (foreign), hence extrinsic comes to mind.

 
  Cricoarytenoids: abductor vs. adductor
When aliens abduct you, they Probe you

Posterior cricoarytenoids abduct. Lateral therefore is adduct by default.
