Cortical and Subcortical Substrates of Cranial Nerve Function. Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2015 Jun;36(3):275-90 PMID: 26233861

Abstract

The pivotal role of cranial nerves in a wholesome life experience cannot be overemphasized. Research has opened new avenues to understand cranial nerve function. Classical concept of strict bilateral cortical control of cranial nerves has given way to concepts of hemispheric dominance and hemispheric lateralization. An astute Neuroradiologist should keep abreast of these concepts and help patients and referring physicians by applying this knowledge in reading images. This chapter provides an overview of cranial nerve function and latest concepts pertaining to their cortical and subcortical control.
