Wink Parasympathetic Ganglia Mnemonic

Parasympathetic ganglia
The four parasympathetic ganglia are the ciliary, otic, pterygopalatine and sub-mandibular.

Here is a simple mnemonic to remember them.

C Ciliary
O Otic
P Pterygopalatine
S Submandibular

If this is far too boring (and you are not the politically correct type) then perhaps this modified but rather unflattering phrase of sound-likes and initial letters will be more memorable to you.
