Cranial bone that can be seen in the eye socket-the main section inside eye socket
Also can be seen from the side-it is slightly anterior to the temporal bone
Has the optic canal
Is the bone that separates the nasal cavity from the brain.
It can be seen (anterior) directly medial to the sphenoid bone.
The upper half of mouth
It is lateral to maxilla and nasal bones. It is the inferior/lateral bone of the eye socket.
From the side, it also contain the zygomatic arch (cheek bone)
A paired bone
Deep to the maxilla, it is the back bone of the roof of mouth.
Also a paired bone
Smallest bone of the face.
Contains the lacrimal groove
Inferior nasal concha
bone in the nose that structures the scroll like pathway of the sinus
The condyle of the mandible that is the most posterior.
The bone that enables us to open/close mouth
The process of the mandible that connects to the masseter and temporalis muscles for mastation
One of the few unpaired bones of the face.
It is the bone in the nose closest to the jaw
External Occipital Protuberance
The bump on the back of skull.
It attaches the trapezius muscle to the skull. Larger in males.
Ridges on the occipital bone that provide attachment for neck muscles
Bulge behind ear.
Provides attachment for sternocleidomastoid muscles
A pointy projection under the ear.
It provides attachment for ligaments and muscles of the neck like the stylohyoid muscle and stylohyoid ligament.
Largest opening in the skull.
It is the opening of the vertebral canal to the brain.
More posterior than the carotid canals, it is near the foramen magnum. Lies between the temporal and occipital bones
Provides a passageway for certain cranial nerves and the Sigmoid sinus (jugular vein).
In the temporal bone and more anterior to the jugular foramen.
Allows passage of the carotid artery and other cranial nerves
Contains Transverse Process: Opening of the transverse foramen (for vertebral artery) and it is most posterior of all vertebrae. From a lateral view, you may be able to see the transverse foramen and it appears to be large. 7 of them
Has a spinous process (flattened), articular facets, and body (smaller).
Main unique feature is the coastal facet: the connection between the vertebra and ribs
Has a medium sized body, and long transverse process. (also, perhaps the image is incorrect, but there appears to be a missing upsidedown "U" on the bottom of lateral view) 12 of them
Unique feature is the very large body (weight support).
It has a spinous process, transverse process (2 "arms" and facets.
The first 7 ribs that have a direct (with cartilage) connection with the sternum.
Ribs that do no connect with the sternum.
Bottom two ribs (4 total) that do not have either a direct or indirect connection with the sternum.
