True/False - Skull lecture 2013
These questions were not submitted by the lecturer
1. The pterion is so named in reference to a prehistoric bird having a greater wing. Perhaps a pterodactyl.
2. The parietal foramina transmit emissary veins.
3. The parietal foramina provide communication between the region of the scalp and the cranium.
4. The condylar canal transmits the hypoglossal nerve and the hypoglossal canal transmits the condylar emissary vein.
5. The jugular canal transmits the common carotid artery into the skull.
6. The petrotympanic fissure transmits the tympanic branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve.
7. The continuation of the facial nerve into the parotid region is by way of the stylomastoid foramen.
8. The stylomastoid foramen provides communication between the facial canal of the occipital bone and the infratemporal fossa.
9. The epicranial aponeurosis (galea) is the intertendon of the occipitofrontalis muscle.
10. The dura mater of the cranial cavity, unlike in the spinal canal, is adhered to the endosteum. Thus, there is not an epidural space.
