Cráneo

El cráneo es anterior a la columna vertebral y es la estructura ósea que encierra el cerebro. Su propósito es proteger el cerebro y servir de sitio de adhesión para los músculos faciales. Las dos regiones del cráneo son la craneal y la facial. La porción craneal es la parte que aloja al cerebro en sí y la facial comprende los demás huesos del cráneo.Cráneo
