Identify the skeletal division.
Frontal bone (lateral view)
Frontal bone (anterior view)
Supraorbital margin of frontal bone
A thickening over the eye.
Supraorbital foramen (notch)
Internal auditory meatus
Passageway for nerves and vessels that supply the ear.
Mandibular fossa of temporal bone.
Articulates with the head of the mandible to form the temporomandibular joint. The mandible (lower jaw) joins with the skull at this site.
Zygomatic process of temporal bone
Sphenoid bone (lateral view)
Middle nasal conchae of ethmoid bone.
Perpendicular plate of ethmoid
Superior portion of nasal septum is formed by
Maxillary bone (maxilla)
Carries the upper teeth and forms the boundary of three cavities: the roof of the mouth (palate), the floor of the nose, and the floor of the orbits.
Only movable bone in the face. It is the largest and strongest of the facial bones.
Serves as a passage for the trigeminal nerve.
either of two irregularly shaped bones that form the back of the hard palate and helps to form the nasal cavity and the floor of the orbits
Temporal process of zygomatic bone
Formed from union of the zygomatic process of the temporal bone and the temporal processof the zygomatic bone.
Bone that forms posterior/inferior part of the nasal septal wall between the nostrils
Identify the disarticulated bone
Hyoid bone (lateral view)
The bone located in the neck between the mandible and the larynx, which supports the tongue and provides attachment for some of its muscles. It is the only bone that does not form an articulation (joint)
Lamdoidal suture (posterior view)
Lambdoidal suture (lateral view)
Cervical curvature of vertebral column
Forms after birth the baby begins to raise the head.
Lumbar curvature of vertebral column
Formed when the child begins to stand and walk.
Thoracic curvature of vertebral column
Primary curvature present in the fetus [Think of spine in fetal position]
Sacral curvature of vertebral column
primary curve that is form the top (base) of the sacrum to the tip of the coccyx
Cervical vertebrae (C1-C7)
Thoracic vertebrae (T1-T12)
Sacrum (sacral bone)
Serves as the mechanical weight-bearing base of the spinal column and the fused central posterior section of the pelvic girdle.
Sacrum (sacral bone)
Identify the bone.
The openings in the cervical vertebrae for the transmission of the vertebral artery and vein are called the:
Body of cervical vertebrae
Body of thoracic vertebrae
Body of lumbar vertebrae
What is the name of the opening thru which the spinal nerves pass after branching from the spinal chord?
