    For the cranial nerves, I am still working on function, but to remember the names in order, I use what I learned in Anatomy:

    On - Olfactory
    Old - Optic
    Olympus - Oculomotor
    Towering - Trochlear
    Tops - Trigeminal
    A - Abducens
    Finn - Facial
    And - Acoustic
    German - Glossopharyngeal
    Viewed - Vagus
    Some - Spinal Accessory
    Hops - Hypoglossal

    This is how I learned in my A&P class, it really helped with memorization.

    For some reason I lost some of my post in the twilight Zone!

    as for function of the cranial nerves, i didn't have a trick, just had to memorize. but my a&p prof gave a pretty good tool for remembering the names:

    oh-olfactory
    oh-optic
    oh-oculomotor
    to-trochlear
    touch-trigeminal
    and-abducens
    feel-facial
    very-vestibulocochlear
    good-glossopharyngeal
    very-vagus
    ah-accessory and hypoglossal

    i guess adding that little bit of naughty was a good way to get it to stick for us! worked for me!!


    as for the psych terms, i guess i didn't have anything that worked, because i sure can't remember them now!

    This was how I was taught to memorize the function (sensory, motor, or both) of cranial nerves 31 years ago, and I still remember. You need to match this up with the names of the cranial nerves (methods suggested in the prior posts) to better understand the function of each specific nerve.

    S=sensory
    M=motor
    B=both (both sensory & motor)

    Some-CN 1
    Say-CN II
    Marry-CN III
    Money-CN IV
    But-CN V
    My-CN VI
    Brother-CN VII
    Say-CN VII
    Bad-CN IX
    Business-CN X
    Marry-CN XI
    Money-CN XII

    I can't tell you thank you enough for this post. I saw the other examples
    On - Olfactory
    Old - Optic
    Olympus - Oculomotor.....ect
    online and some people in my class even showed the teacher, but as much as I tried, I could not remember the different nerves to save my life. I happened to see your post, and I read it over once, and it was set. I will probably never forget in what order the cranial nerves are in now. I always do better at remembering things if I can make them dirty, lol. Just had to say thank you!!!!
