A remarkable revolution occurred in clinical neurology and our understanding of the brain when imaging techniques were developed that allowed for visualization of the brain. This now includes: • • Computed tomography (CT) (often pronounced as a “CAT” scan, meaning computer assisted tomography see Figure 28A). This is done using x-rays, and there is a computer reconstruction of the brain after a series of views are taken from a large number of perspectives.

This tract crosses the midline as the pyramidal decussation, demarcating the end of the medulla and the beginning of the spinal cord. CRANIAL NERVE FUNCTIONS Knowledge of the attachment of each cranial nerve (CN) to the brainstem is a marker of the location of the cranial nerve nucleus within the brainstem (see Figure 8A and Figure 8B), in almost all cases. In addition, it is necessary to know the function of each of the nerves. Midbrain Level • CN III, the oculomotor nerve, supplies several of the extraocular muscles, which move the eyeball.
