What is special about C2?odontoid/ dens
What is special about C7?Vertebral prominens
What does C1 and C2 allow us to do?Allows us to rotate our head

Section 6

Question Answer
3 things specific to c spinestransverse foramina, bifid spinous processes, and anterior bodies all overlap
What is the articular pillar?thickness of bone in between the articulating processes
What is the lateral masses?Only in C1, same as articular pillar
In C1 what do the articulating facets articulate with? And what does that make?the skull; atlantooccipital articulation
