    Who doesn't love some good anatomy

    I'd really suggest that you review the brachial plexus. It would be hard to explain without looking at a diagram or a cadaver. Putting it very simply-the anterior compartment of the arm is supplied by the musculocutaneous n, the posterior compartment of the arm is supplied by the radial n. The deltoid is supplied by the axillary n. The anterior compartment of the forearm is supplied by the median n, and the posterior compartment of the forearm is supplied by the radial n. Most of the intrinsic mm of the hand are supplied by the ulnar nerve-that isn't very specific and that doesn't describe cutaneous sensation so I really do suggest grabbing that Netter's and reviewing the brachial plexus. Memorize all the trunks, cords, divisions and branches....just draw it over and over again

    That's my 2 cents anyway

    Good Luck
