Question Answer
206How many bones?
80Axial - how many bones?
126Appendicular - how many bones?
1) Provide points of attachments for muscles  2) Protect and support softer underlying tissues  3) House blood producing cells  4) Store inorganic salts  5) Contain passage ways for blood vessels and nerves Five functions of the Skeletal System:
(1) Osseous Tissue, (2) Blood Vessels, (3) NervesBones contain various kinds of tissues, including
COMPACT or SPONGYOsseous tissue can appear
(1) Give shape to body parts, (2) Support and protect soft structures, (3) Allow body movement, (4) Store calcium, (5) Red bone marrow of bone produces new blood cells – hematopoiesisFunctions of Bones
Every cell in the body needs calcium, so the body must have a large supply readily available.Why is it important for the bones to store calcium?
Ossificationprocess of bone growth
Intramembranous ossification Bones begin as tough, fibrous membrane
Intramembranous ossification Bone-forming cells called osteoblasts turn the membrane to bone (located in skull)
Endochondral ossification in which primary ossification occurs in the diaphysis of the of the bone and secondary ossification occurs in the epiphysis.
CondyleA rounded process that usually articulates with another bone
Crest A narrow, ridge-like projection
EpicondyleA projection situated above a condyle
ForamenAn opening through a bone that is usually a passageway for blood vessels, nerves, or ligaments
FossaA relatively deep pit or depression
HeadAn enlargement on the end of a bone
ProcessA prominent projection on a bone
SutureAn interlocking line of union between bones
TrochanterA relatively large process
TubercleA small, knoblike process
Tuberosity A knoblike process, usually larger than a tubercle
Cranial & FacialTwo bone types of the skull
Fontanels“Soft spots” felt on an infant's skull are
FontanelsTough membranes that connect the incompletely developed bones
(1) Osteoblasts & (2) Osteoclasts2 bone cells
Osteoblasts Bone cells that build bone
OsteoclastsBone cells that crush bone

The Spinal Column

Question Answer
Cervical vertebrae (7)Smallest and lightest. Located in the neck region
Thoracic vertebraeJoin the 12 pairs of ribs
Lumbar vertebrae (5)Have very sturdy structures
SacrumA triangular-shaped bone that consists of five fused vertebrae
Coccyx (tailbone)A small, triangular-shaped bone made up of 3 to 5 fused vertebrae

The Rib Cage

Question Answer
SternumForms the front middle portion of the rib cage
SternumJoins with the clavicles and most ribs
True ribs First seven pairs of ribs
True ribs Attach to sternum by costal cartilage
False ribsRib pairs 8, 9, and 10
False ribsAttach to the costal cartilage of rib pair 7
Floating ribsRib pairs 11 and 12
Floating ribsDo not attach anteriorly to any structure
