The University of Warwick’s Surgical Society and MedGuide are teaming up once again for a lecture on the Skull and Brain. Have fun and don’t worry if the questions aren’t too intuitive, the video has all the answers!
- Discuss the osteology of the skull with particular reference to the neuroanatomy of the human body
- Discuss the sutures and important fontanelles in the human skull
- Discuss the key items of the cranial foramina
- Outline the organisation of the brain into forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain
- Discuss which structures are derived from the embryological triad above
- Outline the clinical correlates of lesions to those structures grossly
An Introduction with Skull and Brain Anatomy (Basic Science)
What is the embryological origin of a structure terminating at foramina seven?
Foramina - Part TwoIn the midline of the plate of label 13, what attaches?
The olfactory bulb
The tentorium cerebelli
The falx cerebri
The arachnoid mater
The Pia mater
Foramina - Part ThreeHow would you test the function of the nerve passing through foramina 8?
Shrug shoulders against resistance
Touch the oropharynx
Ask the patient to cough
Stick the tongue out
Foramina - Part FourThe labyrinthine artery emerges from a foramina in the skull base after traversing the petrous temporal bone. Select, from the list below, the cranial nerves that run with this artery for its course.
Foramina - Part FiveWhich of the following statements are true about foramina?
VIIth nerve enters the skull with another cranial nerve
IXth nerve exits the skull with a vessel draining the cerebrum
A nerve coursing with the spinal cord causes the head to laterally rotate
Foramen ovale transmits the nerve that supplies the temporalis muscle
The foramen lacerum transmits the fourth cranial nerve
What is the embryonic origin of the region of the brainstem that is the origin of the trigeminal nerve?
Brain - Part TwoWhich best describes the function of #2?
A conduit for information of the same hemisphere
The outflow of the vestibulocerebellum
A white matter tract connecting two hemispheres
The stalk of the pituitary gland
Broca's area for expression of language
Brain - Part ThreeThe blood supply of #4 is?
Brain - Part FourWhat is the name of #3?
The prefrontal cortex
The cingulate sulcus
The cingulate gyrus
The corpus callosum
Brain - Part FiveWhich of the options below are secreted by #6?
