Anatomy of the hyoid apparatus in odontoceli (toothed whales): Specializations of their skeleton and musculature compared with those of terrestrial mammals
Background: The hyoid apparatus of odontocetes (toothed whales) serves as a major attachment point for many of the muscles and ligaments subserving breathing, swallowing, and sound production.
The new face of gross anatomy
The nature of anatomy education has changed substantially over the past decade due to both a new generation of students who learn differently from those of past years and the enormity of advances in… Expand
Climatic Effects on the Nasal Complex: A CT Imaging, Comparative Anatomical, and Morphometric Investigation of Macaca mulatta and Macaca fascicularis
Previous studies exploring the effects of climate on the nasal region have largely focused on external craniofacial linear parameters, using dry crania of modern human populations. This investigation… Expand
Sisters of the Sinuses: Cetacean Air Sacs
This overview assesses some distinguishing features of the cetacean (whale, dolphin, porpoise) air sac system that may relate to the anatomy and function of the paranasal sinuses in terrestrial… Expand

The subarcuate fossa of the petrosal bone houses the petrosal lobule of the cerebellar paraflocculus. Although the subarcuate fossa can be extensive, little is known about its relative size and… Expand
The Function of the Epiglottis in Monkey and Man 1
In stumptail monkeys from birth to adulthood, and in very young human infants, the epiglottis serves to guide the larynx upwardly behind the soft palate so it can lock into the nasopharynx and remain… Expand
Postnatal descent of the epiglottis in man. A preliminary report.
The function of the epiglottis in adult man is unclear. However, during early infancy the epiglottic cartilage appears to play an important role in separating the upper respiratory tract from the… Expand
Developmental change in a basicranial line and its relationship to the upper respiratory system in living primates.
This study investigated the relationship between alterations in a basicranial line and changes in the upper respiratory system of selected non-human primates and of man. This was done through… Expand
Mechanisms of Middle ear aeration: Anatomic and physiologic evidence in primates
Proper aeration is a prerequisite for normal middle ear function in all terrestrial mammals. Our previous studies in primates provided anatomic evidence of neural circuits between the middle ear,… Expand
Position of the larynx in odontoceti (toothed whales)
This study examines the positional relationships of the odontocete (toothed whale) larynx to further an understanding of their breathing, swallowing, and vocalizing abilities. Seventeen specimens… Expand
