It's hard to describe the smell of Anatomy lab to people outside of medical school. It doesn't make you want to throw up, but it is not pleasant. It's kind of like chlorine in the way it lingers on your skin until you can take a shower, and even after showering and sponge-bathing, you can smell it.
This module has been a very heavy lab module, in that we're in lab for at least 12 hours a week (next Monday we have lab from 9-12 and then 1-5). It has brought a whole new meaning to that saying, "April showers bring May flowers". Our LAST lab is next Tuesday, and I cannot wait to not smell like formaldehyde.

Cranial Nerve X: The levator veli palatini muscles are responsible for elevating the uvula. If the Vagus nerve (CN X) is damaged on one side, the uvula will deviate towards the healthy side.
Cranial Nerve XII: The Genioglossus muscles on the sides of your tongue are responsible for the ability to stick your tongue out (protract). If there is a lesion on one side of the Hypoglossal nerve (CN XII), the tongue will be deviated towards the damaged side.
