The mandible is my bee-otch because I am able to make it elevate, protract, retract and move side-to-side--whenever I want! Who Am I?
There are two of me on each skull and when we work together we can flex the neck. However, when only one of me is working I can rotate the head to the opposite side (so I can search for my other half). Who Am I?
and the Pterygoid Twins (Medial and Lateral)
Mastication (chewing) cannot be accomplished without the help of these four sibling muscles.
The "Scalene" brothers
We are triplet neck mucles. Me and my two brothers always do everything together. We all start (originate) at the Tranverse Process of cervicle vertebrae, we all go to (insert) to the superior surface of the first two ribs, and we all flex the neck and elevate the ribs. Who Are We?
Muscle(s) that extend from the occipital bone down through all of the thoracic vertebrae. Who Am I?
The Capitis family:
Superior Obliquus Capitis
Inferior Obliquus Capitis
Our instructor calls these muscles the "suboccipitals" but we're pretty sure there is something wrong with his medula oblongata because there is no mention of "suboccipitals" in our book. Who Are We?
SPINOUS PROCESSES of the cervical and thoracic spine
Both the Semispinalis thoracis and Spinalis thoracis insert onto the ______________ of the spine.
External and Internal Obliques
Which two muscles of the abdomen flex the trunk (vertebral column)?
External and Internal Intercostals
Which muscle(s) originate from and insert to the inferior and superior border of the ribs?
I increase volume of the thoracic cavity; decrease volume of the abdomino-pelvic cavity; am known as the "inspiratory muscle"; and look like a mushroom. Who Am I?
I believe myself to be the "Master of the Mandible", as I originate at the Maxilla and zygomatic arch and I insert at the laterl surface of the mandibular ramus as well as the coronoid process of the mandible. Who Am I?
I am a muscle that is in the shape of a chinese fan. I insert at the coronoid process and ramus of the mandible. Who Am I?
Masseter, Temporalis, and Medial Pterygoid
Because we like to elevate the mandible, we are protagonists to the Platysma. Who Are We?
I am a long neck muscle that originates at the acromion of scapula as well as the fascia covering the superior part of the pectoralis major and deltoid muscles. Who Am I?
I suffer from multiple personalities, which can be best seen by my name that is comprised of the two bones I originate from (sternum and clavicle) and the bone I insert into (mastoid). Who Am I?
Superior muscles inserts at the Occipital bone between superior and Inferior Nuchal Line, and the Inferior muscles inserts at the Posterior aspect of transverse process of ATLAS
Obliquus capitis (superior and inferior)
Muscle origination points--
Superior: Transverse process of ATLAS
Inferior: Spine and Lamina of AXIS
Who Am I?
Occipitofrontalis (Occipital Belly)
I originate at the superior nuchal line of the occipital bone and mastoid process of the temporal bone. Who Am I?
Muscle origination of...
Major: Spinous process of the AXIS
Minor: Posterior arch of the ATLAS
Who Am I?
Which muscle originates at the superior surface of the pubis (hee, hee--I said "pubis") and inserts at the Xiphoid process (lower edge of sternum)?
