Concept #1: The Cranial Nerves

Practice: The "H-Test" is that famous medical test where the tester holds a finger in front of the patient's face and then moves it in an H shape, asking the patient to track the finger's movements by moving their eyes only. If a patient is unable to do this properly, which cranial nerve(s) could be damaged? (Choose all that apply.)

Practice: A 18-year-old football player comes off the sidelines complaining that he suffered a big hit in the head during the last play. When you ask him to stick out his tongue, he struggles to do so—only the right half comes out, so that it looks like he’s just moving his tongue to the left instead of sticking it out. Which of the cranial nerves was damaged in the hit?
