3

what is the function of the olfactory nerve?

smells

4

a lesion in the olfactory nerve results in what?

dysosmia

5

what is the function of the optic nerve?

sees

6

a lesion in the optic nerve results in what?

visual field deficits (anopsia)
loss of sensory limb of light reflex with III (oculomotor)

*only nerve to be affected by multiple sclerosis

7

what is the function of the oculomotor nerve?

motor: to all eyeball muscles except lateral rectus and superior oblique; adduction (medial rectus) is the most important action; elevates upper eyelid (levator palpebrae superioris)

parasympathetic: constricts pupil (sphincter pupillae) and accomodates (ciliary muscle)

8

a lesion in the oculomotor nerve results in what?

diplopia with external strabismus, ptosis, dilated pupil, loss of motor limb of light reflex with II (optic nerve), loss of near response

9

what is the function of the trochlear nerve?

superior oblique: depresses and abducts eyeball
intorts eyeball

10

a lesion in the trochlear nerve results in what?

weakness looking down with eye adducted, difficulty reading, going down stairs, head tilt away from lesioned side

11

what are the three branches of the trigeminal nerve?

V1= ophthalmic
V2= maxillary
V3= mandibular

12

what is the function of V1?

SENSORY

general sensation of forehead, scalp, cornea, dorsum of nose, nasal cavity

13

what is the function of V2?

SENSORY

general sensation of palate, nasal cavity, maxillary face, maxillary teeth

14

what is the function of V3?

SENSORY AND MOTOR

general sensation of anterior 2/3 of tongue, mandibular face, mandibular teeth

muscles of mastication (temporalis, masseter, medial and lateral pterygoids). anterior belly of digastric, mylohyoid, tensor tympani, tensor palati

15

a lesion in V1 results in what?

loss of general sensation in skin of forehead/scalp, loss of sensory limb of blink reflex with VII

16

a lesion in V2 results in what?

loss of general sensation in skin over maxilla, maxillary teeth

17

a lesion in V3 results in what?

loss of general sensation in skin over mandible, mandibular teeth, tongue, weakness in chewing

jaw deviation on protrusion toward lesioned nerve

18

what is the function of the abducens nerve?

to lateral rectus: abducts eyeball

19

a lesion in abducens results in what?

diplopia with internal strabismus, pseudoptosis

20

what is the function of the facial nerve?

MOTOR AND SENSORY

to muscles of facial expression (orbicularis oculi and oris, platysma, buccinator) and to posterior belly of digastric, stylohyoid, stapedius

taste anterior 2/3 of tongue/soft palate, general sensation in skin behind ear

saliva (submandibular, sublingual glands), tears (lacrimal gland), mucus (nasal and palatine glands)

21

a lesion in the facial nerve results in what?

corner of mouth droop, can't close eye, wrinkle forehead, loss of motor limb of blink reflex with trigeminal (V1), hyperacusis

altered taste from anterior 2/3 of tongue, pain behind ear

reduction in output of saliva, in secretions, and eyes dry and red

22

what is the function of the vestibulocochlear nerve?

hears, linear acceleration (gravity), angular acceleration (head turning)

23

a lesion in the vestibulocochlear nerve results in what?

sensorineural hearing loss, loss of balance, nystabmus (involuntary eye movements)

24

what is the function of the glossopharyngeal nerve?

MOTOR AND SENSORY

to only one muscle: stylopharyngeus

general sensation of oropharynx, carotid sinus, and carotid body, taste and general sensation of posterior 1/3 of tongue

saliva (parotid gland)

25

a lesion in the glossopharyngeal nerve results in what?

loss of sensory limb of gag reflex with X

reduction in output of saliva

26

what is the function of the vagus nerve?

MOTOR AND SENSORY

to muscles of palate except tensor palati
to muscles of pharynx except stylopharyngeus
to all muscles of larynx

senses larynx and laryngopharynx

to cardiac muscle and lung smooth muscle
to glands and smooth muscle in foregut and midgut

27

a lesion in the vagus nerve results in what?

nasal speech, nasal regurgitation, palate droop, tip of uvula deviates away from lesioned nerve, dysphagia, loss of motor limb of gag reflex with IX, hoarseness

loss of cough reflex

reduced peristalsis

28

what is the function of the accessory nerve?

turns chin to opposite side (SCM) and elevates and upwardly rotates scapula (trapezius)

29
