the large cranial bone forming the front part of the cranium: the forehead and the upper part of the orbits
either of two skull bones between the frontal and occipital bones and forming the top and sides of the cranium
Located on the midline of the skull lies between both parietal bones (immovable joint)
between parietal bone and temporal bone on side of the skull, bordered in back by occipital bone
On either side ochiasmatic groove -transmits optic nerve (CN II) along with its meningeal coverings, and the ophthalmic artery
bone that forms parts of the side of the skull and floor of the cranial activity. There is a right and left temporal bone.
spike-like process extending downward from the temporal bone on each side of the skull
CN IX, X, XI, superior bulb of internal jugular, inferior petrosal and sigmoid sunuses, meningeal branches of ascending pharyngeal and occipital arteries pass through
Middle nasal Concha
the middle thin, spongy, bony plate with curved margins, part of the ethmoidal labyrinth, projecting from the lateral wall of the nasal cavity and separating the superior meatus from the middle meatus;
vertical projection providing a point of attachment for the dura mater, helping to secure the brain within the skull
superior surface of the ethmoid; perforated by a foramina which allows passage of the olfactory nerves, which provide sense of smell
Forms most of the upper jaw, and part of the hard palate, contains upper molars, premolars, and canines
forms the anterior portion of the hard palate (roof) of the mouth also forms parts of the nasal cavity and eye orbits
a ridge that forms the borders of the upper and lower jaws and contains the sockets of the teeth
small fragile bone making up part of the front inner walls of each eye socket and providing room for the passage of the lacrimal ducts
Anterior and lateral depression of roof of orbit which accommodates the lacrimal gland
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
Inferior nasal Concha
located on each side of the nasal septum, attached to the lateral wall of the nasal cavity; increase epithelial surface area and create turbulence in the inspired air
thin trapezoidal bone of the skull forming the posterior and inferior parts of the nasal septum
