    Old Opie occasionally tries trigonometry and feels gloomy vague and hypoactive...

    also to remember if they're sensory, motor or both...
    Some surgeons make money but my brother says beautiful blondes make more

    You have one nose (olfactory)
    You have 2 eyes (optic)
    3,4,6 makes your eyes do tricks (ocular motor, trochlear, abducens)
    5 rhymes with tri (trigemenal)
    the #7 can be drawn on your face (facial)
    you can make an eight in your ear (acoustic)
    9 and 10 both have a "g" (glossopharengeal, vagus)
    11 makes your shoulders go to heaven (spinal accessory)
    12 hypoglossal

    This helps me. I actually can not remember all of them but I remember the majority and that helps me eliminate the ones that are not correct.

    Hope this helps!!

    For the cranial nerves, it gives:

    Oh Olfactory
    O
    h - Optic
    O
    h - Oculomotor
    T
    o - Trochlear
    Touch -Trigeminal
    And - Abducens
    Feel - Facial
    Very - Vestibulocochlear
    G
    reen -Glossopharyngeal
    Vegetables - Vagus
    AH! - Accessory and Hypoglossal


    Good luck to ya, let me know if it helps

    Oh dear ... here goes ... The one I learned many years ago at Duke University. The faculty suggested it as we would never forget it, but they wouldn't actually say it outloud. They just told us to check with upper classmen or anyone associated with the med school.

    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    to
    touch
    and
    feel
    a
    girl's
    vagina
    ... ah...

    And for motor, sensory or both:
    Many say marry money, but my brother says big boobs mean more.

    I learned 'em the same as llg. Don't think I'll ever forget 'em either. One thing tho', I agree with bpimommy that CR1 (olfactory) is sensory not motor.

    The word is "mnemonic," not pneumonic. This isn't criticism or a visit from the vocabulary police. It's an effort to make mnemonics easier to look up.

    Ironically, I'll bet there are listings under the incorrect spelling as well.

    Good luck, all.
