The flexor muscles of the wrist are controlled by the Ulnar and Median nerves.

The extensor muscles of the wrist are controlled by the Radial nerve.

Of the fingers, the thumb, forefinger, middle finger and half of the ring finger are controlled by the radial nerve. Half of the ring finger and the little finger are controlled by the ulnar nerve.

hence the main nerves of the wrist and figners are the Radial and Ulnar nerves.
