Cribiform plate is perforated to allow olfactory n. endings to penetrate nasal capsule CN II: Optic Special sensory neurons: sight Origin: retina Terminate: temporal lobe NN pass through optic canal CN III: Occulomotor Mixed nerve: somatic motor and visceral (parasympathetic) motor Gross motor control of the eye (somatic) Pupil sphincter mm and ciliary mm of lens Exit: superior orbital fissure CN IV: Trochlear Somatic motor: superior oblique mm Exits through superior orbital fissure CN V: Trigeminal V1: Opthalmic (S) sup. Orb. Fiss. V2: Maxillary (S) Foramen rotundum V3: Mandibular (S/M) Foramen oval CN VI: Abducens Somatic motor control of lateral rectus mm Exit: superior orbital fissure Mixed nerve Sensory = taste Motor Parasympathetic (rest/digest) motor to salivary and lacrimal glands Internal Auditory meatus & Stylomastoid foramen CN VII: Facial CN VIII: Vestibulocochlear Mixed nerve: PRIMARILY sensory (hearing and equillibrium), also Motor = tuning hearing Passes through Internal acoustic (auditory meatus) CN IX Glossopharyngeal
Mixed nerve: Parasympathetic: parotid gland General sensory and special (taste) Motor: pharynx Jugular foramen CN X: Vagus Vagus = Wanderer Mixed Sensory and . . . Somatic motor and . . . Parasympathetic motor Important in controlling: Cardiac Respiratory Digestive Urinary CN XI Accessory Has origins in medulla and spinal cord Exits via jugular foramen Motor control Swallowing SCM Trapezius CN XII: Hypoglossal Motor Tongue (intrinsic and extrinsic mm) Hypoglossal canal Cranial Nerve Summary Sensory only: CN I and II Parasympathetic control: CN III, VII, IX, X Most are mixed (sensory and motor) Sensory and motor functions do not have to be related ...
