Cranial Nerves 3e targets students studying neuroanatomy and gross anatomy for the first time across the health sciences. The text guides users through pertinent information and color-coded functional drawings of the pathways/modalities from the periph-ery of the body to the brain (sensory input) and from the brain to the periphery (motor output)/5. Book chapter Full text access The olfactory nerve is the first cranial nerve and conveys special sensory information related to smell. It is the shortest of the cranial nerves and passes from its receptors in the nasal mucosa to the forebrain. It enters the skull through the cribriform plate of the ethmoid bone. This beautifully illustrated book combines a detailed exposition of the anatomy and function of the cranial nerves with practical coverage of clinical concepts for the assessment and differential diagnosis of cranial nerve dysfunction. Book Description: Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves combines anatomical knowledge, pathology, clinical examination, and explanation of clinical findings, drawing together material typically scattered throughout anatomical textbooks.

The cranial nerves are a group of 12 paired nerves in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) integral to the reception of sensory information. and transmission of muscle commands. CRANIAL NERVES. 2 PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM The nerves and ganglia outside the CNS that. The Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves Ebook; Preface. The cranial nerves are an endlessly fascinating family of twelve nerves that have a dramatic impact on our daily lives. A dysfunction of the cranial nerves can cause loss of vision or double vision, loss of smell, poor balance, or loss of muscle function, and can also be an indicator of underlying neurological disorders. The cranial nerves provide afferent and efferent (sensory, motor, and autonomic) innervation to the structures of the head and neck. Unlike spinal nerves whose roots are neural fibers from the spinal grey matter, cranial nerves are composed of the neural processes associated with distinct brainstem nuclei and cortical structures. While the spinal grey matter is organized into a posterior Cited by: 1. This is a pretty good text that focuses entirely on cranial nerves, with lots of pictures. For a book with this focus, I found the pictures sometimes crowded and difficult to interpret. Cranial nerves are also color-coded by function such as special sensory or branchial motor, which I didn't find especially helpful, but others might/5.

Entirely new, original and abundantly illustrated, this book is an essential guide with which to visualize and become familiar with the cranial nerves. It will teach the practitioner manipulations of this delicate neural system as well as new techniques which permit one to have an effect on the most precious part of the cranium: the brain.
