Another difference in the region of the midbrain and hindbrain is that not all nerves have both motor and sensory components; some (like the nerves supplying the eye muscles) are specialized as purely motor nerves and others, like the nerves of balance and hearing, are purely sensory. 44 Chapter 4 Peripheral nerves Somatic and visceral motor and sensory elements In the spinal cord and hindbrain, the motor and sensory components can be further divided into somatic and visceral groups. The somatic groups supply voluntary (striated) muscles, and receive sensation from skin or vibration receptors.

The Brain Watson Kirkcaldie Paxinos 47 The olfactory and optic nerves Despite their names, the olfactory and optic nerves are both tracts rather than nerves; they are formed from extensions of the developing forebrain. Part of the evidence for the special nature of these two nerves is that their axon myelin sheaths are made by oligodendroglia rather than by Schwann cells. Another characteristic is that the olfactory and optic nerves are both surrounded by three layers of meninges and cerebrospinal fluid, like other parts of the forebrain.

In the limbs there is a distortion in these segmental strips due to the elongation and rotation of limb buds during development, and the dermatomes are generally oriented longitudinally along the main axis of each limb. The dermatomes were originally mapped by studying the loss of sensations in patients whose spinal nerve roots have been damaged, or by mapping the distribution of vesicles and blisters in cases of herpes zoster (shingles). In shingles, the virus is usually localized to a single dorsal root ganglion, and the characteristic rash is found in a single dermatome.
