The anterior fontanelle is the most prominent; laypeople call it the “soft spot.” The fontanelles in a newborn are often felt as ridges because of the […]

Superficial Skeletal Muscles

Most of the muscles shown move the skeleton for locomotion, but some muscles—especially those of the head—move other structures (e.g., the eyeballs, scalp, eyelids, skin of face, and tongue). The sheath of the left rectus abdominis, formed by aponeuroses of the flat abdominal muscles, has been removed to reveal the muscle. Retinacula are deep fascial […]
