Questions and Answers

Match the following bones with their anatomical division in the skull:

Frontal, Occipital, Parietal = Cranial roof Frontal, Sphenoid, Ethmoid, Occipital, Parietal, Temporal = Cranial base Skull = Bony structure supporting the face and protecting the brain Sutures = Unique fibrous joints in the skull

Match the following actions with their description:

Supports the face = Function of the bony structure of the skull Protects the brain = Function of the cranium Articulates with the 1st cervical vertebra, facial bones, and mandible = Function of the cranial base Unique to the skull = Characteristic of sutures

Match the following terms with their description:

Neurocranium = Encloses and protects the brain, meninges, and cerebral vasculature Viscerocranium = Anatomical division of the facial bones Calvarium = Also known as the cranial roof Sphenoid, Ethmoid, Temporal = Bones comprising the cranial base

Match the following terms with their related function:

<p>Cranial roof = Comprised of the frontal, occipital, and two parietal bones Cranial base = Comprised of the frontal, sphenoid, ethmoid, occipital, parietal, and temporal bones Skull = Supports the face and forms a protective cavity for the brain Sutures = Type of fibrous joint unique to the skull</p> Signup and view all the answers

Match the following bones with their articulation partners:

<p>Frontal, Occipital, Parietal = Articulate with the 1st cervical vertebra (atlas) Frontal, Sphenoid, Ethmoid, Occipital, Parietal, Temporal = Articulate with the facial bones and mandible (jaw) Skull = Bones articulating with the 1st cervical vertebra, facial bones, and mandible Sutures = Articulate with the facial bones and mandible (jaw)</p> Signup and view all the answers

Study Notes

Skull Bones and Divisions

  • Cranial bones belong to the neurocranium division
  • Facial bones belong to the viscerocranium division
  • Neurocranium protects the brain
  • Viscerocranium forms the face

Bone Articulations

  • Bones articulate with each other at joints
  • Joints allow for movement and flexibility in the skull

Anatomical Actions

  • Elevation: upward movement, e.g., looking up
  • Depression: downward movement, e.g., looking down
  • Protraction: forward movement, e.g., sticking out the jaw
  • Retraction: backward movement, e.g., pulling in the jaw
  • Lateral rotation: rotating the head side to side
  • Medial rotation: rotating the head toward the midline

Anatomical Terms

  • Sagittal: relating to the midline, e.g., sagittal suture
  • Coronal: relating to the crown, e.g., coronal suture
  • Frontal: relating to the forehead
  • Parietal: relating to the side of the head
  • Occipital: relating to the back of the head
