Cervical Nerves

We just learned about the Dorsal Root.

The spinal nerves that that go up and down your spinal cord are split up by what section they are in.
The top section of spinal nerves between your head and your shoulders are called the cervical nerves.
There are 8 cervical spinal nerves, called C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8.

These nerves help control the muscles in your neck and your tongue.
