Cranial nerves are involved in head and neck function, and processes such as eating, speech and facial expression. This clinically oriented survey of cranial nerve anatomy and function, for students of medicine, dentistry and speech therapy, will also be useful for postgraduate physicians and GPs, and specialists in head and neck healthcare. After an introductory section surveying cranial nerve organization and tricky basics such as ganglia, nuclei and brain stem pathways, the nerves are considered in functional groups. In each chapter, the main anatomical features of each nerve are followed by clinical aspects and details of clinical testing. Simple line diagrams accompany the text.
