Describe the Brachial Plexus
5 Roots; 3 Trunks; 6 Divisions; 3 Cords; 5 Branches
what are the 5 roots of the brachial plexus?
what are the 3 trunks of the brachial plexus
the Upper, Middle, and Lower
What are the branches off the upper trunk of the brachial plexus?
The suprascapular above, and the subclavius below
The 6 divisions of the brachial plexus
Anterior/Posterior from upper trunks; Anterior and posterior from middle trunk; the Anterior/Posterior of the Lower trunks
the 3 cords of the brachial plexus
Lateral; Posterior; Medial
what is the branch off the lateral cord of the brachial plexus?
the Lateral pectoral
what are the three branches off the posterior cord of the brachial plexus
Upper, middle, lower subscaapular
What are the three branches of the medial cord?
Medial pectoral; Medial cutaneous n. of arm; Medial cutaneous n. of forearm
What are the 5 branches of the brachial plexus
Musculocutaneous; Median; Axillary; Radial; Ulner.

The full table of Dermatomes, Myatomes, and nerves for the brachial plexus.
The great Neurological levels lecture....
What does every somite level have?
a spinal cord segment
that is associated with a vetebral cord segment
that is associated with a Spinal nerve element that gives us: dermatome and myotome component for the dorsal ramus (back) and a dermatomr and myatome component for the ventral ramus. (body wall and limbs)
where do the spinal roots fuse and make the trunk?
not until they exit the vetebral foramen
