17

What ligaments will attach to the typical cervical spinous process

The inter spinous ligament and ligamentum nuchae

18

What will form the posterior boundary of a typical cervical intervertebral foramen

The inferior articular process, superior articular process, capsular ligament and ligamentum flavor

19

What will form the superior boundary in a typical cervical intervertebral foramen

The inferior vertebral notch

20

What will form the inferior boundary of a typical cervical intervertebral foramen

The superior vertebral notch

21

What will form the unique anterior boundary of a typical cervical intervertebral foramen

The uncinate process of the segment below and lateral groove of the segment above forms the joint of luschka

22

What is the unique anterior boundary of the intervertebral foramen for the C4 spinal nerve

The lateral groove of C3 and uncinate process of C4 forming the joint of Luschka

23

What is the name of the first cervical vertebrae

Atlas

24

What features are lacking at C1

Vertebral body, pedicels, a spinous process and the intervertebral disc

25

What is thought to represent the pedicel at C1

Anterior arch

26

29

What is observed on the back of the anterior arch of C1

The fovea dentis

30

What is the morphology of the superior articular facet of C1

They are elliptical, closer together in front and often demonstrate an elevation subdividing the facet surface into two separate surfaces
