Cranial Nerves by number

Cranial Nerves by number

The next time you’re trying to remember the locations and functions of the cranial nerves, picture this drawing. All twelve cranial nerves are represented, though some may be a little harder to spot than others. For example, the shoulders are formed by the number ’11” because cranial nerve XI controls neck and shoulder movement. If you immediately recognize that the sides of the face and the top of the head are formed by the number ‘7,” you’re well on your way to using this memory device.
