page 1 of 4 ANAT 11110 Lab 7 Fall 2011 The Appendicular Skeleton The appendicular skeleton is that part of the skeleton associated with the limbs (aka, appendages or extremities). These are the parts of the skeleton primarily responsible for movement of the body. We break the appendicular skeleton down into the upper extremity and the lower extremity, each with a bony girdle that attaches it to the axial skeleton. Station 1: The Shoulder Girdle Each extremity is attached to the axial skeleton by a bony girdle. In the case of the upper extremity, it is attached to the vertebral column and rib cage via the shoulder (aka, pectoral) girdle. The shoulder girdle consists of 2 pairs of bones. Using your textbooks, be able to identify the following bones of the shoulder girdle, as well as specific structures and features which occur on them: clavicle ('collarbone'): scapula ('shoulder blade'): sternal (aka, medial) end spine acromial (aka, lateral) end vertebral (aka, medial) border (aka, margin) inferior angle acromion process coracoid process glenoid fossa (aka, cavity) Station 2: Upper Extremity, Part 1, the Arm The arm (aka, brachium) contains a single bone, the humerus. Using your textbooks, be able to identify the humerus, as well as specific structures and features which occur on it: humerus: greater tubercle anatomical neck
