9

Where is the mastoid process located

Temporal bone

10

What is the zygomatic arch part of

Zygomatic and temporal

11

What is the styloid process part of

Temporal bone

12

What are the 3 fossae of the flow of the skull

Anterior Cranial Fossa
Middle Cranial Fossa
Posterior Cranial Fossa

13

Name the parts of the floor of the skull that belong to the sphenoid bone

The body
Pituitary fossa
Greater wing
Lesser wing

14

What is the largest foramen that you can see in the posterior cranial fossa

Foramen Magnum

15

Name two structures that pass through the foramen magnum

Medulla and Meninges
CN XI
Dural veins
Right and Left vertebral arteries
Anterior and Posterior spinal arteries

16

What bone is the superior nuchal line part of

Occipital

17

Which two bones form the zygomatic arch

Anteriorly- Zygomatic bone (temporal process)
Posteriorly- Temporal bone (zygomatic process)

18

What type of joint is present between the bones that form the zygomatic arch

Oblique suture

19

Name the 5 lairs of the scalp

Skin
Connective tissue
Aponeurosis of the occipitofrontal muscle (Epicranial aponeurosis)
Loose connective tissue
Pericranium

20

Contraction of the anterior belly of the occipitofrontalis action produced

Elevates eyebrows and wrinkles skin on forehead

21

What are the 2 sources of cutaneous innervation of the scalp

Anterior part of scalp- branches of Trigeminal nerve (Cranial nerve V)
Posterior part of scalp- cutaneous branches of the cervical spine C2 and C3

22

What structure forms the ventral rami of C5 and T1 and what does it innervate

Brachial plexus
Skin and musculature of the upper limb

23

In which layer of the scalp are blood vessels present

Connective tissue layer

24

Lacerating wounds of the scalp would cause the dense connective tissue of scalp to retract preventing vasoconstriction of arteries. Would wounds to the scalp bleed profusely or sparingly

Profusely, because the vessels are unable to vasoconstrict to reduce the bleeding

25

Anterior Jugular vein
Superficial temporal vein
Facial vein
Supratrochlear vein
Supra-orbital vein

29

What are emissary veins

Veins that anatomise with diploic veins in the skull bones through valveless veins called emissary veins

30

What is diploe

Spongey cancellous bone separating the inner and outer layers of the cortical bone of the skull
