Cranial nerves

This topic starts with an overview of the 12 cranial nerves, accompanied by a specimen of the brain overlaid with an anatomical drawing illustrating the precise positions of the nerves. An interactive animation then allows the user to explore the structure and function of each of the cranial nerves in detail. Each cranial nerve description is supplemented with an anatomical drawing and a gross image of the relevant area.
