  1. Characteristics of Axial Muscles[ak-see-uhl]
    Image Upload
    *Axial Muscles have both their origins and insertions on parts of the Axial Skeleton

    *Axial Muscles support the head and spinal column

    *Axial Muscles are used in facial expressions, chewing and swallowing

    *Axial Muscles aid in breathing 

    *Support and Protection of the abdominal and pelvic organ
  2. 5 Groups of Axial[ak-see-uhl] Muscles
    1- Muscles of Head and Neck

    2-Muslces of Spinal

    3-Muscles of Respiration

    4-Muslces of Abdominal Wall

    5-Muscles of Pelvic Floor
  3. Muscles of Facial Expressions
    3 Major Characteristics
    Image UploadImage Upload
    1-Originate in the superficial fascia{fey-shuh} or on the skull bones

    2-Insert into the superficial fascia{fey-shuh} of the skin

    3-Contract and Contort the skin causing it to move (facial expressions
  4. Define Buccinator[buhk-suh-ney-ter]
    Compresses check against teeth when we eat to keep food from getting into the VESTIBULE[ves-tuh-byool].

    Also the muscle for suckling-compresses air in the oral cavity to play wind intrument

  5. Muscles of Mastication(Lab)
    *Refers to the process of chewing

    *Move the mandible at the temporomandibular joint

    • *Paired muscles of Mastication
    • **Temporalis
    • ***Masseter[ma-see-ter]
    • Image Upload
  6. Muscles of Mastication(class)
    3 parts
    1-Temporalis-elevates and retracts the mandible(pulls posteriorly)

    2-Masseter-elevates and retracts the mandible(pulls anteriorly)

    • 3-Lateral and medial pterygoids{Terri-Goids}-protract and move the mandible side to side while chewing

  7. Anterior and Lateral Neck Muscles(Lab)
    • *FLEX the head and neck downward
    • **"Neck flexion" and "Head flexion" refer to the same movement

    • *The main muscles are the Sternocleidomastoid{sterm-o-cloid-mas-toid}  and the 3 Scalenes{scay-lean-s}

  8. Define Anterolateral{ an·ter·o·lat·er·al} Muscles
    • Flex the head and/or neck 
    • Image Upload
  9. Define-Posterior Muscles
    • Extend Head and/or neck
    • Image Upload
  10. Define-Sternocleidomastoid [stur-no-kloy-duh-mas-toid]
    *anterolateral neck muscle*

    Bilateral Contraction & Unilateral 

    Test Question

    with baby and head stuck?? 
    Sternocleidomastoid muscles are the major muscles of this compartment

    Bilateral Contraction- cause flexion of the neck

    • Unilateral Contraction-cause lateral flexion and rotation of head to the opposite side
    • Image Upload
  11. Characteristics of Posterior Neck Muscles(lab)
    1-Extend the head/neck

    2-The trapezius attaches to the skull and helps extend the head/neck

    • 3-Primary function is to help move the pectoral girdle

  12. Define-Posterior Neck Muscles
    Posterior Neck Muscles extend the head and neck when they contract bilaterally

    • Posterior Neck Muscles contract unilaterally when they turn the head and neck to the same side

    • Semispinalis Capitis                Rectus Capitis Post Minor
    • Sternocleidomastoid               Rectus Capitis Post Major
    • Splenius Capitis                      Superior Oblique
    • Levator Scapulae                    Inferior Oblique
