Lariam (Mefloquine)

The spinal nerves are numbered according to the vertebrae where they emerge. There are twelve pairs of nerves very similar to these which come directly off the brain, and emerge through holes in the skull, or cranium. Hence they are called cranial nerves. They are both numbered and named. Medical students are forced to memorize a most discouraging number of facts. For aid they often resort to doggerel, some of it vulgar, for vulgarity is often closely associated with the facts of life. The cranial nerves, however, are memorized by the aid of verse chaste enough to be safely quoted here.
Animals vary greatly in the comparative size and usefulness of different nerves. Most wild animals find the sense of smell absolutely necessary for their existence. Without it they would have practically no defense against their enemies. A dog kept as a pet could probably get along, but he would have a very sad time.
Smell in humans is not much more than a luxury, although it does take part in taste and has considerable effect on our digestive system. It is evident that our smelling apparatus is very inefficient. It takes a strong odor, from the point of view of an animal, even to make us aware of its presence and our smelling is quickly fatigued. The delicate fragrance of flowers, for instance, soon ceases to be noticeable if we stay with it.
On the other hand, sight is highly important to us and our optic nerve is a large and efficient one. Our facial nerve is a busy one, for the muscles of our face are many and active. When someone commented on the old features of David Garrick, the actor, Samuel Johnson replied that it was natural, for Davy’s features had much more wear and tear than other men’s’. The sensations and motions of our mouths and throats are so many and important that the nerve supply here is great. Our acoustic or hearing nerve is undoubtedly sluggish as compared with those of most animals. The answer to all this, of course, is that for our purposes our nerves do pretty well, but we could not compete with the animals in the struggle for life if the outcome depended on what we can do with our nerves.
