The vagus nerve ( pron.: / ˈ v eɪ ɡ ə s / VAY -gəs ), also called pneumogastric nerve or cranial nerve X , is the tenth of twelve (excluding CN0 ) paired cranial nerves . Upon leaving the medulla between the medullary pyramid and the inferior cerebellar peduncle , it extends through the jugular foramen , then passes into the carotid sheath between the internal carotid artery and the internal jugular vein down below the head , to the neck, chest and abdomen , where it contributes to the innervation of the viscera . Besides output to the various organs in the body, the vagus nerve conveys sensory information about the state of the body's organs to the central nervous system . 80-90% of the nerve fibers in the vagus nerve are afferent (sensory) nerves communicating the state of the viscera to the brain.
