- Interactive 3-D Skull Module
The human head is comprised of 23 different bones. The Cranium, also called the "Skull," describes the skeleton that comprises all of the bones of the head, face and lower jaw (i.e., the mandible). In an adult, various bones of the cranium are paired (i.e., consist of a left and a right) while others which cross the mid-sagittal plane are unpaired
- The Skull Practical Exam
The skull is composed of many bone plates that fit together at sutures. The bones and most of the sutures have names. Also, there are many openings, fissures and impressions on the skull that also have names. It is important to know the names of the structures and landmarks of the skull because of their anatomical relationship to many essential nerves, arteries, muscles, etc. Thus, this will aid in your understanding of the anatomy and potential clinical significance of pathology associated with head and neck regions.
