The motherf#&%¡” Cranial Nerves I felt destroyed after studying the brain stem. I hope this helps guys! I know it isn’t “handwritten” but I did type it! If there are any errors, you know what to do! R. PS1: if you want this chart, send me your email address in a message and i’ll be happy to send you this document :) PS2: I’m sorry for all the swearing. Actually…I’m not… apparently the word “fuck” help me remember stuff better! =)
I got a question recently about how to remember the different branches of cranial nerve #5, the trigeminal nerve (shown at right). I thought I'd share my response here for any others interested. It's a beast of a nerve and no doubt gives most medical students headaches. I do, however, think memory palaces work really well for this type of thing. Let's get into it!
Cranial Nerves memory trick. 1) Olfactory. 2) Optic. 3) Oculomotor. 4) Trochlear. 5) Trigeminal. 6) Abducens. 7) Facial. 8) Vestibulocochlear. 9) Glossopharyngeal. 10) Vagus. 11) Spinal Accessory. 12) Hypoglossal. I'm not sure how much this helps, but I'd never seen this little graphic before, and it is clever. Good luck in school; the job is worth it!
