Think you are a Science buff? How well do you know cranial nerves? Cranial nerve functions are involved with the operation of all five senses, organs, and muscle movement. A few examples of cranial nerves' functions include the facial nerve responsible for our facial expressions. The vestibulocochlear nerve is accountable for hearing and balance, and the hypoglossal nerve is responsible for the movement of the tongue, and it helps with talking. This quiz is sure to delight your sense of sight.
