    N :nerve (femoral)

    A :artery(femoral)

    V : Vein (femoral)

    E :empty space (femoral canal)

    L : lacunar ligament

    With the above pneumonic the orientation is from lateral to medial.
    (femoral nerve is most lateral and lacunar ligament is most medial)
    I should have said-the femoral nerve is medial to the Iliacus muscle at the level of the inguinal ligament

    Ti-of T1

    Kinesin Kicks molecules out of cell
    Positive directed microtubules; towards Plasma membrane

    Dynein Drags molecules into the cell body
    Negatively directed microtubules; towards Nucleus (cell body or centromere)

    interossei of hand
    PAD Palmar interossei Adduct
    DAB Dorsal Abduct

    To remember what the cranial nerves are, remember this colorful mnem:

    oh oh oh, to touch and feel a girl's vagina and hymen

    (olfactory - CN 1; optic - CN 2; oculomotor - CN 3; trochlear - CN 4; trigeminal - CN 5; abducens - CN 6; facial - CN 7; acoustic/vestibulocochlear - CN 8; glossopharyngeal - CN 9; vagus - CN 10; accessory - CN 11; hypoglossal - CN 12)

    and to remember if they're innervated by a sensory or a motor pathway, or both, remember this:

    Some say marry money but my brother says big brains matter more

    (CNs 1, 2, 8 - sensory
    CNs 3, 4, 6, 11, 12 - motor
    rest are via both pathways)

    Strap Muscles are
    Sterno hyoid, Omohyoid, Sternothyroid, Thyrohyoid, Geniothyroid

    SOS - supplied by ansa cervicalis
    rest - by C1 fibers

    Diaphragm innervation and LP site.

    C3,4,5, keeps diaphragm alive and 3,4,5, makes a lumbar puncture drive!

    Out of: Extra Ocular Eye Muscles {EOEM}

    E1 prostaglandin------Open ductus arteriosus
    Epidural hemmorhage------------Middle Meningeal artery
