THE CRANIAL NERVES

Here is a medical mnemonic for the names of the twelve cranial nerves, supplied by Bill Woods (7/99) who describes it as "handy-dandy"!

" On Old Olympus Towering Tops,
A Famous Vocal German Viewed Some Hops
"

The initial letters of each word in the sentence stand for:

Olfactory, Optic, Oculomotor, Trochlear, Trigeminal,
Abducens, Facial, Vestibulocochlear, Glossopharyngeal, Vagus, Spinal accessory, Hypoglossal.

Jesse Garcia has an alternative mnemonic (6/00) that substitutes "Accessory" for "Spinal accessory":

" Old Opticians Occupy Trojan Tricycles, [while]
Abdul Faces Very Glossy Vagrant Active Hypes
"
