Mandibular fossa- projection that fits into temporal bone where the mandible fits into Temporal process – joint allows to open and close the mouth where the mandibular fossa joint fit with the zygomatic process Styloid process- pointy point process where muscles of the neck attach onto Mastoid process- rounded area for muscles to attach too External auditory canal- the hole on temporal bone, funnel shape so sound can enter to the ear drum Internal auditory canal- where the nerves pass through Occipital-Forman magnum- the big hole where the spinal cord leaves the skull Occipital condyles- smooth rounded projections 1stvertebra attaches to skull External occipital protuberance- bump on the occipital bone Superior/ inferior nuchal lines- where the neck muscle attaches Sphenoid boneBody- central core ot the bone Lesser wing- the little wing Greater wing- the bigger wings Pterygoid process- process coming off the bottom allows muscles to attach to Sella turcica where the pituitary gland sits Ethmoid Cribriform plate- has cribiform foramina – perforated flat part of bone that allows nerves and vessels in Crista galli- attachment for layers of the brain Perpendicular plate- inferior of the cribiform plate goes midline of nasal cavity helps form nasal septum Superior / middle nasal conchae- shell like swirls in the nasal cavity SuturesCoronal suture- parietal / frontal/ cranial planeSagittal suture- parietal parietalSquamosal or squamous suture- parietal temporal Lambdoidal or lamboid suture- parietal occipital Facial bones Zygomatic Temporal process – arch made by zygomatic bone and arch Lacrimal- Lacrimal groove- holds the tear duct Nasal- forms the bridge of the nose Vomer- behind the nasal septum Inferior nasal conchae- they are their own bones Palatine- l shaped bones formation of the palatine Horizontal plate- the flat part Hard plate- helps form the roof of the mouth maxillary and 2 palatine bones Maxilla- alveolar process
Projects in between the teeth Alveoli- where the teeth attach to tooth sockets Hard palateMandibleBodyCoronoid process- where muscles attach too Mandibular condyle- where the bone attaches with the temporal bone Alveolar process Mandibular foramen and mental foramen- were vessels and nerves run through SinusesLighten skull, humidify and warm air, resonating chambers for the voiceFrontal, ethmoid, sphenoid, maxillary Structures that form from 2 or more bones Hard plate- maxilla and palatine Zygomatic arch- temporal and zygomatic Vertebral ColumnVertebrae Cervical thoracic lumbar sacrum coccyx Structure of vertebrae Body All have them except 1Vertebral arch Lamina and pedicle Vertebral foramen Hole in between the vertebrae Vertebral canal
