This is the thickest part of the temporal bone. It arises from the otic capsules that stabilize the delicate internal ear structures. The mastoid is the posterolateral protuberance of the petrous portion that is easily palpable just posterior to the ear. The tympanic part of the temporal bone is the ring-like plate that forms the walls of the external acoustic meatus. Each temporal bone articulates with five bones. indd Page 58 15/03/11 8:44 PM user-F391 /Users/user-F391/Desktop Cranial Bones – Sphenoid The sphenoid bone is a complex bone that has the spread -winged appearance of a butterfly.

This page, the facing page, and the page that follows depict changes in the skeleton from a newborn to an adult. indd Page 33 15/03/11 8:42 PM user-F391 /Users/user-F391/Desktop 5 Axial Skeleton The axial skeleton, comprised of the skull, vertebral column, ribs, and sternum, forms the central axis of the body. This sturdy central core is the most primitive portion of the vertebrate skeletal system. It evolved as the initial skeleton of the first vertebrate animals, to which the limb bones (the subject of the next chapter) were much later additions.

Because of this shared developmental similarity each body segment, from the base of the skull to the end of the coccyx, has the same basic skeletal design. This is clearly evident in the structure of the vertebrae and ribs. As you study these skeletal elements in the photos of this chapter, notice their similarities. The elements of the axial skeleton have many functional roles in the body. Both the cranial skeleton and the vertebral column form a strong protective case around the delicate tissues of the central nervous system.
