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!


This diagram illustrates other important relationships essential for conjugate gaze and the regulation of the vestibular-ocular reflex. An essential element in this relationship includes vestibular inputs to vestibular nuclei (6). Vestibular nuclei project to the ipsilateral cranial nerve (CN) VI, which is inhibitory, and to the contralateral CN VI, which is excitatory (3). Projections from CN VI to the contralateral CN III are also excitatory (7). The medial longitudinal fasciculus contains…

Cranial Nerves. To know as much as possible about the brain. Kinda like a brain expert although I'm not sure that will ever happen bc the God makes our brains so complex, and that's exactly why I love studying it!


This is the illustrated Harry Potter-themed cranial nerve mnemonic I really could have used as an M1 Source:


Cranial nerves: I. OLFACTORY = smell. 2. OPTIC = vision. 3. OCULOMOTOR = pupil constriction. 4. TROCHLEAR = eye movements, (down & in). 5. TRIGEMINAL = blink reflex. 6. ABDUCENS = eye movement, (outward). 7. FACIAL = smiling. 8. ACOUSTIC = hearing & balance 9. GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL = swallowing 10. VAGUS = gagging & swallowing 11. SPINAL ACCESSORY = shoulder shrug 12. HYPOGLOSSAL = tongue movement
