Nerves originating largely in the brain stem that control the facial muscles and certain specialized activities of the head (sight, smell, hearing).
nerves of the peripheral nervous system that originate from or terminate in the brain.
Nerves that directly connect the brain to peripheral targets. The human nervous system includes twelve distinct cranial nerves.
The 12 pairs of nerves emerging from the brain for various motor and sensory functions of the head and neck area, similar to the spinal nerves.
Peripheral nerves originating at the brain.
refer to the 12 sets of nerves that originate from the brainstem, retina and nose and which mediate the special senses as well as providing the motor and sensory innervation of the head and neck
nerves originating along the base of the brain rather than off the spinal cord
nerve pairs originating from the base of the brain and brainstem
The 12 nerves of the brain that control motor and sensory functions, including swallowing, heart rate, eye movement and smell.
The cranial nerves control the sensory and muscle functions around the eyes, face, and throat. There are two sets each of twelve cranial nerves. Each set involves one side of the body.
The 12 nerves that emerge directly from the brain and leave the skull through separate holes. They control the sense of smell, sight, hearing, among other actions.
12 pairs of nerves having their origin in the brain.
The 12 pairs of nerves that carry sensory information toward (and sometimes motor information away from) the brain
Twelve pairs of nerves that serve various areas and functions of the head. The trigeminal nerve is one of these nerves.
The 12 sets of efferent fibers that exit the CNS directly from the brain rather than from the spinal cord. In order they are: Olfactory, Optic, Oculomotor, Trochlear, Trigeminal, Aducens, Facial, Vestibulocochlear, Glossopharyngeal, Vagus, Accessory and Hypoglossal nerves.
Twelve very important nerves which originate in the midbrain and which innervate structures in the head, neck and some body organs.
Nerves that carry sensory or motor fibers to the face and neck. Included among this group of 12 nerves are the optic nerve (vision), trigeminal nerve (sensation along the face), vagus nerve (pharynx and vocal cord). Evaluation of cranial nerve function is part of the standard neurologic exam.
Twelve pairs of nerves responsible for various functions, including speech, hearing, taste, facial sensation and facial expression, balance, and smell.
nerves that innervate the muscles of the head and neck and allow for the sensation of vision, hearing, taste, and smell
The twelve pairs of "nerves" that are directly connected to the brain. They are the nervi olfactorii(I), opticus(II), oculomotorius(III), trochlearis(IV), trigeminus(V), abducens(VI), facialis(VII),vestibulocochlearis(VIII),glossopharyngeus(IX), vagus(X), accessorius(XI),and hypoglossus(XIII). The olfactory "nerve" and the optic "nerve" are actually post-synaptic tracts with glial cells like astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, rather than Schwann cells. image
The twelve pairs of nerves that enter and exit directly from the hindbrain. These nerves control movements of the head and neck, carry sensations from them including vision, olfaction, and audition, and regulate the various glandular secretions in the head.
12 pairs of nerves that exit from the brain.
Nerves that arise from the base of the brain or the brainstem that provide sensory and motor function to the eyes, nose, ears, tongue, and face.
Twelve pairs of nerves that originate in the brain and provide sensory and motor innervation to regions of the neck, head, thorax, and abdomen.
12 pairs of specialized nerves that have their origins within the cranium or brain cavity.
The set of twelve nerves found on each side of the head and neck that control the sensory and muscle functions of a number of organs such as the eyes, nose, tongue face and throat.
12 pairs of nerves that carry information to and from sense organs, muscles and internal organs. The cranial nerves include: olfactory nerve (smell), optic nerve (sight), oculomotor nerve (eye movement, dilation of pupil), trochlear nerve (eye movement), trigeminal nerve (sensation from the head and chewing muscles), abduccens nerve
Twelve nerves that connect the brain with the muscles and sense organs of the face, neck, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.
Cranial nerves are nerves that emerge directly from the brain in contrast to spinal nerves which emerge from segments of the spinal cord. Conventionally, there are twelve recognized cranial nerves in humans. The nerves from the third onward arise from the brain stem.
