Elevates, protracts (bilateral).
Temporal fossa and fascia to coronoid process.
Elevates and retracts mandible.
Between head of mandible (condyloid process) and mandibular fossa of temporal bone.
Divides joint into superior and inferior compartments.
Allows mandible to protract and retract as well as elevate and depress.
Base of zygomatic process to mandibular neck.
