ABSTRACT

The twelve pairs of "nerves" that are directly connected to the brain. Using the Latin terminology, they are the nervi: • olfactorii(I)- Olfactory • opticus(II) - Optic • oculomotorius(III)- Oculomotor http://www.emedicine.com/oph/byname/oculomotor-nerve-palsy.htm • trochlearis(IV)- Trochlear http://www.emedicine.com/oph/byname/trochlear-nerve-palsy.htm • trigeminus(V)- Trigeminal • abducens(VI) - Abducens http://www.emedicine.com/oph/byname/abducens-nerve-palsy.htm • facialis(VII) - Facial • vestibulocochlearis(VIII)- Vestibulocochlear • glossopharyngeus(IX)- Glossopharyngeal • vagus(X) - Vagus • accessorius(XI)- Accessory or 'Spinal Accessory' • hypoglossus(XIII)- Hypoglossal The olfactory "nerve" and the optic "nerve" are actually post-synaptic white-matter fiber tracts of the brain itself, with glial cells like astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, rather than the supporting Schwann cells that are characteristic of the spinal and peripheral nerves.
