Example text

It is worth noting that both the plasticity of the bone and the fronto-ethmoidal suture allow small lateral movements as well as small adaptive and compensatory movements to occur. Movements of the midline bones • Figures 30, 31, 32 51 PA RT O N E : Cranial Biomechanics 52 Movement of the vomer The vomer is a lamellar bone with oblique lines of force that run inferiorly and anteriorly; on the one hand, they balance vertical forces and, on the other, they stabilize the maxillary vault laterally.

The external auditory canal forms an angle of 10° with the occipital bone. This resembles the mobility of the cervical column, the main goal of which is to ensure that vision is horizontal. The mobility of the temporal bone, which is as precise, would therefore allow this balancing system to be precisely spatially orientated so as to receive faithfully its afferent stimuli. Movements of the peripheral bones (the paired bones) • Figure 38 57 PA RT O N E : Movement of the temporal bone The axis of the temporal bone passes roughly through its pyramid-shaped petrous region and moves generally along a cardioid, just like the petrosal region itself.

During external rotation, which is synchronous with flexion of the unpaired bones: • the antero-medial angle and the lateral part of the coronal suture move anteriorly and are everted; • the medial part of the coronal suture sinks in and moves posteriorly, like the bregma; • the sagittal suture sinks in and moves posteriorly while its two borders move apart, especially along its posterior part; • the lambda sinks in and its two parietal borders move apart, while its occipital border moves posteriorly; • the lambdoid suture sinks in and moves apart in its medial area, while its lateral area moves anteriorly and is everted; • the temporal suture is everted and opened.
