  1. There are about _ bones altogether in our skeleton.

    The axial skeleton is made up of _ , _ and _.

    It forms the _ axis of our body.

    Usually the axial skeleton consists of about _ bones.
    • 200
    • skull
    • vertebral column
    • thoracic cage
    • longitudinal
    • 80
  2. There a two set of bones that make up the skull. The _ bones surround the _ which encloses the _, and provides sites of attachment for head and neck muscles.

    The top part is called _ or _, the lower part forms the _ , which has 3 fossae, called _,_, and _ cranial fossa.

    The _ bones form the framework of the face, including cavities for special sens organs for _, _ , and _, and opening for _ and _ passage.
    • cranial
    • cranial cavity
    • brain
    • cranial vault
    • calvaria
    • cranial base
    • anterior
    • middle
    • posterior
    • facial
    • sight
    • taste
    • smell
    • air
    • food
  3. 8 Cranial bones:
    • 2 parietal bones
    • 2 temporal bones
    • frontal bone
    • occipital bone
    • sphenoid bone
    • ethmoid bone
  4. The _ bone forms the anterior portion of the cranium and most of the _ cranial fossa.

    It also forms the _ wall of the orbits and contains the air-filled _ sinus.
    • frontal
    • anterior
    • superior
    • frontal
  5. The _ bones form the superior and lateral aspects of cranial vault, while the _ bones form the inferolateral aspects of skull and parts of cranial floor.

    The latter ones have 4 major areas called _ , _ , _ and _ region.
    • parietal
    • temporal
    • squamous region
    • tympanic
    • mastoid
    • petrous
  6. The _ bone forms most of the skull's posterior wall and the _ cranial fossa. 

    It forms a joint with the _ vertebra.
    • occipital
    • posterior
    • first
  7. The _ bone  is a very complex, bat-shaped bone.

    It's called a _ bone, because it articulates with all other cranial bones.

    Its 3 pairs of processes are called _ and _ _ , and _.
    • sphenoid
    • keystone
    • lesser
    • greater
    • wings
    • pterygoid
  8. The deepest skull bone is the _ bone.

    It forms part of the superior part of the _ septum and the roof of the _ cavity, and contributes to the medial wall of the _ .
    • ethmoid
    • nasal
    • nasal
    • orbit
  9. Jagged lines that connect the frontal, occipital and temporal bones of the cranial vault are called _.
    sutures
  10. Connects parietal bones and frontal bone:
    coronal
  11. Connects the parietal bones and occipital bone:
    Lamboid/al
  12. Connects parietal and temporal bones on each side of skull:
    squamous
  13. Suture between right and left parietal bone:
    Sagital
  14. Tiny irregularly shaped bones within sutures are called _ bones.
    sutural
  15. There are _ facial bones.

    The 2 _ bones or _ are fused medially to form the _ jaw and the central portion of the facial skeleton. 

    They articulate with all other facial bones except the _ .

    They connected laterally to the _ bones or _.
    • 14
    • maxillary
    • maxille
    • upper
    • mandible
    • zygomatic
    • cheekbones
  16. The bridge of the nose is formed by the _ bones, whereas the _ bones form part of the medial wall of the _ .
    • nasal 
    • lacrimal
    • orbit
  17. The 2 _ bones are part of 3 skull openings.

    They form the posterior one-third of the _ which separates _ and _ cavity, the posterolateral wall of the _ cavity, and contribute to the _ .
    • palentine
    • hard palate
    • oral
    • nasal
    • nasal 
    • orbit
  18. The _ , which form part of the lateral walls of the nasal cavity, are the smallest facial bones.

    The pow-shaped _ is part of the lower part of the _.
    • inferior nasal choncha
    • vomer
    • septum
  19. The only bone of the skull that can move freely is the _ . 

    IT's the largest and strongest bone of the face, because it has to withstand mechanical stress when we chew. 

    Its connection with the temporal bones is called _ joint.
    • mandible
    • temporamandibular (TMJ)
  20. The _ house the eyes and lacrimal glands are the sites of attachment for eye muscles.
    orbits
  21. 7 bones that form the orbit:
    • frontal
    • ethmoid
    • sphenoid
    • maxilla
    • lacrimal
    • zygomatic
    • palatine bones
  22. The _ cavity is even more complex

    The roof, lateral walls and floor are formed by parts of one cranial bone (_) and 3 facial bones (_ ,_ , _) .

    The nasal _ consists of a bony part (_ ,_ ) and the _ _.
    • nasal
    • ethmoid
    • palatine
    • maxillary
    • inferiornasal conchae
    • septum
    • ethmoid
    • vomer
    • anterior septal cartilage
  23. _ sinuses are mucosa-lined, air-filled spaces that lighten the skull and enhance resonance of the voice.

    They are called _, _, _, and _ sinus.
    • Paranasal
    • ethmoid
    • sphenoid
    • frontal
    • maxillary
  24. The only _ bone is the only bone in the body that is not connected directly with any other bone. 

    It's an attachment site for muscles of _ and _.
    • hyoid
    • speech
    • swallowing
