How is the vertebral canal formed?
formed when the vertebrae are articulated, all the vertebral foramena together form the vertebral canal
Locate the coronal suture.
between the two parietal bones and the frontal bone
What are the cranial and caudal vertebral notches for?

What is the fovea dentis (fovea of the dens)?
articular surface for the dens of the axis
muscle name

Zygomatic Bone
Transformation of energy from food into useable form. (ATP)
Average Heart Rate
75 beats per minute
Innervation of Trapezius
Spinal accessory (CN 9)C3-C4

The portion of the respiratory system that
functions to transmit air to and from the alveoli
is called the __________________
Hard Palate
Name and locate the spina curves
Hangs inferiorly to the liver. It stores and concetrates bile until it is needed to break down fatty foods. The common bile duct delivers the enzymes and bile to the duodenum.
Nuclear Membrane
Delimits nucleus and controls passage of materials in and out of nucleus
Ischio-Pubic Series Origin
Ischial Tuberosity and ischiobpubic symphysis
albuminuria (albumin)
increase in permeability of glomerular membrane. May be due to injury, high blood pressure, disease, bacterial toxins

Spinal Accessory (CN XI)C3, C4 (sensory)
Gluteus Minimus
O- Ilium
I- the greater trochanter of the femur
A- rotation of thigh
Rectus Abdominis
O- pubic crest and symphysis pubis
I - xiphoid proces and costal cartilage of ribs 5-7
A- flexion of vertebral column
Is found internally, and is mostly a sencory organ. It is composed of the same erectile tissue that is found in the penis.
Shriveling of a cell due to being placed in a hypertonic solution.
Attachments of Trapezius
O: Ext. occipital protuberance, nuchal ligament, spinous process C7-T12I: Lateral 1/3 of clavicle, acromion process and spine of the scapula
