The axial skeleton skull and sinuses only
Composed of cranial and facial bones
Anterior portion of the cranium; forms the forehead, superior part of the orbit and anterior part of the cranial floor
Forms the sides of the cranium
Midline articulation point of the two parietal bones
Point where parietals meet the frontal bone
Inferior to parietal bone ( think ears )
Suture between Temporal bone and parietal bone
Part of the Temporel bone. A bridge like projection that joins with the zygomatic bone.
External acoustic meatus
Opening in Temporal bone. A canal leading to eardrum
Needlelike projection inferior to the external acoustic meatus on temporal bone. Serves as an attachment point for muscles and ligaments of the neck.
Thin bridge of bone that joins with zygomatic bone
Rough projection, attachment site for neck muscles, found on temporal bone
Allows passage of jugular vein, at junction of occipital and temporal bones
Forms floor and back wall of the skull
Where the occipital bone joins the parietal bones
Allows spinal cord to connect with brain
On each side of the foramen magnum, rest on first vertebra
Upper jaw, carry upper teeth
Form posterior part of hard palate (And part of the orbit)
Form bridge of nose
Single bone in median line of nasal cavity, forms most of nasal septum
Lower jaw, joins temporal bones on each side of the face, largest and strongest bone of the face
Not directly articulated with any other bone, (greater horn and lesser horn)
Opening medial to the styloid process that allows the internal carotid artery to enter the cranial cavity. Part of Temporal bone
Opening medial to styloid process through which the internal jugular vein and cranial nerves pass. Part of Temporal bone
Bat shaped bone forming a plateau across the width of the skull.
Part of sphenoid. anterior to the temporal bones. form part of the orbits of the eyes
The saddle shaped region in the sphenoid midline which nearly encloses the pituitary gland
Bat shaped portions of the sphenoid, anterior to the sella turcica
Opening posterior to the sella turcica that allows a branch of cranial nerve to pass.
Irregularly shaped bone anterior to the sphenoid. Forms the roof of the nasal cavity, upper nasal septum, and part of the medial orbit walls.
Part of ethmoid bone. Vertical projection to which the Dura mater attaches
