The bipartition of the superior articular facet is one of the classical variants of the human atlas. Rare quantitative data are available in the literature on this possible bipartition in humans and this disposition remains little understood. For non-human primates, there are almost no detailed comparative data in the literature, despite their potential importance in understanding the significance of this pattern in humans and its evolution. The material used in this study consisted of 500… CONTINUE READING
