Homework Help: Cranial nerves

  1. Oct 9, 2011 #1
    Ok so I have a huge exam tomorrow on head and neck anatomy :cry:. Learning the cranial nerves thus far has been a beast. I just wanted to make sure I have this correct, ALL somatic cranial nerve fibers, and ALL sympathetic cranial nerve fibers are postsynaptic correct? The only nerve fibers that are not post synaptic are the ones carrying parasympathetics to the otic, pterygopalantine, submandibular, and ciliary ganglion correct? Somatics synapse in the spinal cord and sympathetics should synapse in the paravertebral ganglionic chain right? I just want to make sure I have this all straight.
