Although Necturus is so commonly used in laboratory courses of vertebrate dissection there have been few attempts made to give a systematic account of its cranial nerves. Laboratory guides and outlines still adhere to an antiquated nomenclature in reference to the nervous system of Necturus, for which procedure there is little excuse in the light of the work that has been done already on the nervous systems of other Urodela.
