What in the world? How is this to help me?

One of our instructors emailed some powerpoints to us. We are just starting the cranial nerves/ neuro module 2. Ok, I print out the "normal" PP, which cover the same material we read and hear in lecture. I click on another attachment and below is what I find. I am appalled to say the least and I find it highly inappropiate to expect me to study from this. On top of that stance, I dont even understand HOW it is to help me study or remember the nerves!!!!!

 

I ran into another instructor and a classmate and I told her about this. A few words and she knew what we were talking about and confirmed it with the line about Olsen Twins. But the thing is, she made it out like all knew about this and all were fine with it. I just cant imagine a school board being ok with this, even if it involves adults in the learning setting!

 

What do you think of this?

List of cranial nerves

Number 

 

Name 

 

Sensory,
Motor,
or Both
 

 

 

 

 

 

Function 

 

I

 

Olfactory 

 

Purely Sensory

 

 

 

 

 

Transmits the sense of smell from the nasal cavity.[1] Located in olfactory foramina in the cribriform plate of ethmoid.

 

II

 

Optic 

 

Purely Sensory

 

 

 

 

 

Transmits visual signals from the retina of the eye to the brain.[3] Located in the optic canal.

 

III

 

Oculomotor 

 

Mainly Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Innervates the levator palpebrae superioris, superior rectus, medial rectus, inferior rectus, and inferior oblique, which collectively perform most eye movements. Also innervates the sphincter pupillae and the muscles of the ciliary body. Located in the superior orbital fissure.

 

IV

 

Trochlear 

 

Mainly Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Innervates the superior oblique muscle, which depresses, rotates laterally, and intorts the eyeball. Located in the superior orbital fissure.

 

V

 

Trigeminal 

 

Both Sensory and Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Receives sensation from the face and innervates the muscles of mastication. Located in the superior orbital fissure (ophthalmic nerve - V1), foramen rotundum (maxillary nerve - V2), and foramen ovale (mandibular nerve - V3).

 

VI

 

Abducens 

 

Mainly Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Innervates the lateral rectus, which abducts the eye. Located in the superior orbital fissure.

 

VII

 

Facial 

 

Both Sensory and Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Provides motor innervation to the muscles of facial expression, posterior belly of the digastric muscle, and stapedius muscle. Also receives the special sense of taste from the anterior 2/3 of the tongue and provides secretomotor innervation to the salivary glands (except parotid) and the lacrimal gland. Located in and runs through the internal acoustic canal to the facial canal and exits at the stylomastoid foramen.

 

VIII

 

Acoustic or Vestibulocochlear (or auditory-vestibular nerve or acoustic nerve)

 

Mostly sensory

 

 

 

 

 

Senses sound, rotation, and gravity (essential for balance and movement). More specifically, the vestibular branch carries impulses for equilibrium and the cochlear branch carries impulses for hearing. Located in the internal acoustic canal.

 

IX

 

Glossopharyngeal 

 

Both Sensory and Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Receives taste from the posterior 1/3 of the tongue, provides secretomotor innervation to the parotid gland, and provides motor innervation to the stylopharyngeus. Some sensation is also relayed to the brain from the palatine tonsils. Located in the jugular foramen.

 

X

 

Vagus 

 

Both Sensory and Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Supplies branchiomotor innervation to most laryngeal and pharyngeal muscles (except the stylopharyngeus, which is innervated by the glossopharyngeal). Also provides parasympathetic fibers to nearly all thoracic and abdominal viscera down to the splenic flexure. Receives the special sense of taste from the epiglottis. A major function: controls muscles for voice and resonance and the soft palate. Symptoms of damage: dysphagia (swallowing problems), velopharyngeal insufficiency. Located in the jugular foramen.

 

XI

 

Accessory (or cranial accessory nerve or spinal accessory nerve)

 

Mainly Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Controls the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles, and overlaps with functions of the vagus nerve (CN X). Symptoms of damage: inability to shrug, weak head movement. Located in the jugular foramen.

 

XII

 

Hypoglossal 

 

Mainly Motor

 

 

 

 

 

Provides motor innervation to the muscles of the tongue (except for the palatoglossus, which is innervated by the vagus nerve) and other glossal muscles. Important for swallowing (bolus formation) and speech articulation. Located in the hypoglossal canal.

I wouldn't be ok with it. Yes, you are adults, but its still a professional environment. I would complain. The perverse ones should not be in there!

Also, we're doing the skeletal system in a&p right now too.. I think I'll use one of these.. Probably a clean one though lol

I'll agree that someof those are inappropriate but they do work and she wasn't saying you had to use any particular one.
