Lecture 6 4 skeletal system

Lecture 6.4: Skeletal System


The skull

The Skull

  • AKA: The Cranium

  • Protects our brain

  • Gives us our senses


Frontal bone

Frontal Bone

  • Forehead

  • Orbits—spaces for eyes

  • Frontal sinuses—air-filled chambers

  • Lighten bone

  • Produce mucus for nasal cavity

Figure 6.10


Parietal bone paired

Parietal Bone (Paired)

  • Posterior to frontal bone

  • Sagittal suture—locks 2 bones together

  • Coronal suture--locks parietal to frontal


Figure 6 15b

Figure 6.15b


Occipital bone

Occipital Bone

  • Most posterior

  • Lambdoid Suture—locks occipital with parietal

  • Foramen magnum—where spinal cord passes


Figure 6 101

Figure 6.10


Temporal bone paired

Temporal Bone (Paired)

  • Below parietal

  • Squamous suture—connects parietal to temporal


Figure 6 102

Figure 6.10


Sphenoid bone

Sphenoid Bone

  • Part of floor of cranium

  • Unites cranium and facial bones

  • Sellaturcica—depression that houses pituitary gland

Ethmoid bone

Ethmoid Bone

  • Anterior to sphenoid

  • Medial eyes and roof and sides of nasal cavity

  • Nasal septum—divides nose into left/right sides
