R-E-M-E-M-B-E-R (Part 2)

Hi again! Here’s part 2 of my mnemonics list. These tips need a little more explanation, but they worked for me, so perhaps you’ll find some value in them as well.

To remember the types of white blood cells and their descending proportion in a blood sample…
“Never Let Monkeys Eat Bananas” = Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils, Basophils



To remember where lymphocytes mature…
B cells mature in the Bone marrow; T cells mature in the Thymus



To remember the cranial nerves…
“On Old Olympus Towering Tops, A Finn And German Viewed Some Hops” = Olfactory, Optic, Oculomotor, Trochlear, Trigeminal, Abducens, Facial, Acoustic, Glassopharyngeal, Vagus, Spinal Accessory, Hypoglossal



And to remember the functions of the cranial nerves (sensory [S], motor [M], or both sensory and motor [B])…"Some Say Marry Money But My Brother Says Bad Business Marry Money."



To remember the location of the adrenal glands…
Think ADD RENAL; they're "added" to the renal organs, the kidneys.



That’s all for now! Here’s R-E-M-E-M-B-E-R (Part 1) in case you missed it!
