The name petrous describes its rock-like appearance. This is the thickest part of the temporal bone. It arises from the otic capsules that stabilize the delicate internal ear structures. The mastoid is the posterolateral protuberance of the petrous portion that is easily palpable just posterior to the ear.

Microscopic analysis of this dense bone reveals that it has many microscopic spaces containing cells and blood vessels in circular arrangements called osteons. indd Page 27 15/03/11 6:01 PM user-F391 /Users/user-F391/Desktop Cartilage Growth Plate Bone tissue forms during development by either replacing cartilage tissue precursors (endochondral ossification) or by developing within mesenchymal connective tissue (intramembranous ossification).

The thick quadrilateral basioccipital, or basilar part, contributes to the base of the cranium anterior to the foramen magnum. Lateral to this and converging with the squama are the two condylar parts or exoccipitals. Together the four regions of the bone form the borders to the large circular opening, the foramen magnum, which provides passage for the spinal cord between the cranial vault and the spinal canal. The occipital bone articulates with six bones. indd Page 56 15/03/11 8:44 PM user-F391 /Users/user-F391/Desktop Cranial Bones – Temporal The temporal bone is a complex bone with five distinct parts.
