The Basics

Here's the thing: The smart people that make anatomy exams typically don't succeed in creativity...the same questions are re-packaged and recycled over. and over. and over again.

Which gives us a distinct advantage because we have a pretty good idea of what's going to show up on the test...

You will always see the big 3...

1️⃣Where does the nerve orginate on the brain?

2️⃣What foramen does it pass through

3️⃣Does the nerve carry parasympathetic, sympathetics or both?

We're going to get to those very important questions, but let's first start at the top...
