Trivia anatomy question... (mnemonics)

Post by HUBUM » Fri Apr 08, 2005 2:04 am

Our class has become quite good at coming up with rymes, word associations and even songs to help us learn anatomy. I'll have to make a list and post them someday (right now I'm to busy studying)!

Here's a little anatomy trivia question:

Breakfast at 7, Lunch at 12 and Dinner at 5 refers to what anotomical structure?

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!  I feel like "Horshack" from Welcome Back Kotter... *hehe*<br><br>Spine (vertebrae).  7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar... breakfast, lunch, dinner... top, middle bottom.  (Just wondering where the sacrum and coccyx are in all of this.... or... maybe I am totally wrong!)<br><br>hehehe.... I've never actually done very well at riddles.... I think I impressed myself!  <br><br>

On Old Olympic Towering Tops A Finn And German Viewed Some Hops
<br>I know this one! It's the 12 cranial nerves (Olfactory, Optic, Oculomotor, Trochlear, Trigeminal, Abducens, Facial, vestibulocochlear [used to be called something else that starts with/an A], Glossopharyngeal, vagus, Accessory, Hypoglossal) ;D<br><br>I have three different text books which lists the above as the names of the 12 cranial nerves. I'm sure some sources may have different names. We learned the rhyme or song the same way as Nybor7 did except the last part which we learned as ". . .a Fin and German viewed a hawk."<br><br>Nybor7, I haven't figured out the answers to your other two rhymes (riddles), yet.  :-/<br><br>I'll be watching to see if someone else knows them.<br><br>Greatkat, I do know the answer to your unrepeatable limerick. It's representative of the 12 main meridians and their proper order. ;)<br>

Aaah, I wasn't the first one with the cranial nerves answer.  I see that Palpable posted the correct answer while I was still writing my post.

Alrighty then, I'll answer Palpable and Texas-gal's trivia quesion: Send Larry, Tommy and Paul To The Cat House

(Actually, that's from Texas-gal's post. Palpable's is a racy version of the same thing)

[drum roll] . . .And the answer is. . . .The carpal bones! Namely, scaphoid, lunate, triquetrium, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, and hamate.

(hope I was the first one with the answer this time :P)

Gay Men Love Big ... well, starts with a "P" (I made this one up for the class, and it kinda stuck with them, lol)

and

O, O, O, To Touch And Feel Very Good Velvet. AH...

We learned it as a stretch, when you abduct the leg at the hip joint, these muscles are being stretched. (I think these are right from memory, I'm at work so I don't have my anatomy book, so some may be wrong.)<br><br>(G) Gluteus Minimus<br>(M) Adductor Magnus<br>(L) Adductor Longus<br>(B) Bicep Femoris<br>(P) Pectineus<br><br>Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, I feel almost stupid since graduating school a year ago.

stagg - ....well, lets just leave it at GMLBP... ;)
That's what my teacher told me when I told the class what it could stand for,  ;). You'd have loved our class, I shared many stories about the interesting people I've met in my life, and found I have some things in common with my teacher that I really didn't need to know about. She also tried to convert me to her religion on a daily basis, and even tried to get my friend to go to church so that I would go (maybe she thought I would follow others, like a child would do?). Made for interesting debates, and interesting conversations. :D

My school was crazy and fun! And it didn't help that they opened a bar in the same shopping center during the school year. EVeryone would go there for lunch claiming they had a really great chicken ceaser salad! Yeah Right! Our teaher threw candy at us when we got answers right and was always teaching us songs and poems that the guys revised into something dirty, that just some how seems to stick better, dont know why! On thursdays was "Funk Day" where we did our massage practice hours to that "Sounds of the Seventies" cd with tunes like Shaft, Working at the car wash, and Brick House. Thats why I always laugh when people say you cant massage to music faster than a heartbeat.<br>So heres another funny one that might be hard to figure out, but I'll give you a hint, it has to do with nerves..<br><br>Some Say Marry Money But My Brother Says Big Boobs Make Money!<br><br>And I wont even tell you the way WE learned the cranial nerves!

no, not discs. Its how you remember which of the cranial nerves are motor, sensory, or both, hence the words starting with S, M, and B for both. Pretty handy!
