Quiz On Cranial Nerves: MCQ Trivia! - Quiz

Cranial nerves are nerves that carry information from the brain to other parts of the body, mainly the head and neck. These nerves are present on both sides of the body. They assist with facilitating the senses, such as sight, hearing, smell, and muscle movement. This quiz will provide you with adequate information, and unlike most quizzes, it will not get on your nerves.
