Thanks for the anatomy lesson on the Bell's Palsy
thread. I have a question about what you said. The cranial nerves are all part of the CNS? So a lesion on one of the CN would be considered damage to the CNS, just like a lesion on the spine or brain?
Much of the MS information I've seen describes the optic nerve as part of the CNS, but not the other CNs. I've often wondered why this is.
