Introduction

Some of the cranial nerves are purely sensory, others are purely motor, and the rest have both sensory and motor components. Twelve cranial nerves have traditionally been recognized in humans, which are designated by Roman numerals as well as by descriptive names (Table I). The first two cranial nerves, the olfactory nerve (I) and the optic nerve (II), are purely sensory and innervate the nasal mucosa for the sense of smell (olfaction) and the eye for the sense of sight (vision), respectively. The 10 cranial nerves of the midbrain and hindbrain collectively comprise 23 individual, traditionally recognized components.
