cavernous sinus = CN 3,4, V1, V2, 6 CN 3,4, V1, V2 - go from top to bottom then CN 6 is in the middle of the diagram we are usually shown
The cavernous sinus contains CN 3,4,V1,V2, and 6 (right next to the ICA).
A: MCA defect (face and upper limb)
B: olfactory (recall that this is the only sense spared in thalamic strokes)
C: damage to macula, could be an MCA defect?
D: MCA; supplies parental and temporal(total HH, macula NOT spared), PCA; supplies occipital and some of temporal (total HH, macula spared) - mentioned pareital and temporal because of the quadrantonopis; 2 quads = 1 hemianopsia
E: LR (recall LR6, SO4)
