How do you remember that the twelve cranial nerves are olfactive, optic, common ocular motor, pathetic, trigeminal, external ocular motor, facial, auditory, glosso-pharyngeal, pneumogastric, spinal and hypoglossal?
What a very good question and unless you are a medical or biology student it is probably not one that you have asked yourself very often. However, the solution to the problem will serve to demonstrate a type of mnemonic that is very useful. In his book 50 Best Memory Methods and Tests, Michael Dansel cites that one way to remember this sequence of words is to take the first letter of each nerve and make up a memorable sentence from them.
