Feb 9, '07Joined: Feb '07; Posts: 84Okay guys found this great way of remembering the cranial nerves, courtesy of Sylvia Rayfield's :Nursing made incrediby easy" As you repeat those, do the motion and it will help you remember what each cranial nerve does:
3-4-6 Make your eyes do tricks (help move your eyes)
7 Accross your face (facial movements)
8 Fits nicely in your ears (help you hear)
9 -10 Under your chin (help with swallowing)
11 shrug your shoulders (help with back muscles)
12 stick out your tongue (that is just what is does)
