Cranial Nerve Examination Videos

This is a great series of videos demonstrating how to examine all of the cranial nerves.  You can definitely get cranial nerve examinations in the short cases, so you need to have a slick technique for this often badly performed examination.  A classic pitfall in the neuro cases in the exams is wasting your brain power trying to think about “what comes next” instead of having your technique down pat and using your brain power to think about “where is the lesion?”. These videos will help you get a handle on what is a difficult exam section, and perfect your technique so you stand out from the crowd.
