What is Acoustic Neuroma?
FINAL CONTENT TO COME (this section)
The central nervous system is comprised of the brain and spinal cord. Myriads of nerves run from the spinal cord to all parts of the body in order to gather information from the environment (internal and external) which is then relayed to the brain. One group of nerves is known as the cranial nerves. There are twelve cranial nerves but the one of interest for acoustic neuromas is the eighth (8th) cranial nerve, called the auditory nerve or the vestibulocochlear nerve.
