The 12 cranial nerves are peripheral nerves except for the optic nerve which is a central nervous system tract. Disorders of particular note include the following: Olfactory (I) nerve—anosmia is most commonly encountered as a sequel to headfourth, and sixth cranial nerves—complete lesions lead to the following deficits (1) third nerve—a dilated and unreactive pupil.

Suboccipital craniotomy is a critical approach to the posterior fossa. Critical to avoid electrocautery use at the craniocervical junction due to the risk for dural and vertebral artery injury.

Air embolism from injury to venous sinus is a potential complication.

This nerve is comprised of two parts—a cranial part and a spinal part.

It is the spinal portion which is more clinically relevant. After emerging from either the cranial (at the nucleus ambiguus) or the spinal levels (C5–C6), the accessory nerve then passes into the jugular foramen. Cranial microvariation at pacatnamú: A study of cemetery population variability.

Cranial nerves and their functions (Table ) Cranial nerves arise from the brain as twelve pairs. They pass through or into the cranial bones (thus cranial nerves) and are numbered I to XII roughly in order from top (rostral) to bottom (caudal).Their functions are those of the head: some are concerned.

The cranial nerve exam is a type of neurological examination. It is used to identify problems with the cranial nerves by physical examination. It has nine components. Each test is designed to assess the status of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves (I-XII).

These components correspond to testing the sense of smell (I), visual fields and. The one Preceramic shift was cranial, and the same individual demonstrated a C2-C3 block and a cranial shift at the thoracolumbar border, noted above. Four of the Moche shifts were caudal, and there was an additional shift of indeterminate direction.

Cranial nerve disorder refers to an impairment of one of the twelve cranial nerves that emerge from the underside of the brain, pass through openings in the skull, and lead to parts of the head, neck, and trunk.

The pterional or frontotemporal craniotomy is the workhorse of the supratentorial approaches. Because of its simplicity, flexibility, efficiency, and familiarity to neurosurgeons, this corridor is the most commonly used surgical route to lesions along the anterior and middle skull base.

For each cranial nerve in turn, the anatomy is described with the aid of a skull, pathological specimens, and schematic diagrams.

The technique of examination is demonstrated in clear detail, and auxiliary assessments, such as Hallpike's manoeuvre (a distinctive rendition with some similarities to the tango), are also described.

Weiss, P. The brain is found in the cranial cavity, while the spinal cord is found in the vertebral column. Both are protected by three layers of meninges (dura, arachnoid, and pia mater). The brain generates commands for target tissues and the spinal cord acts as a conduit, connecting the brain to peripheral tissues via the PNS.

The brain is divided. The cranial nerves for each of these are: 2 for the midbrain (CN 3 & 4), 4 for the pons (CN ), and 4 for the medulla (CN ). It is important to remember that cranial nerves never cross (except for one exception, the 4th CN) and clinical findings are always on the same side as the cranial nerve involved.
