CRANIAL BONES ANATOMY. Cranial bones by design are a hard shell of an enclosure which protects the brain and its associated nerves, fluids, and other sensory organs. This responsibility is met via the construction that is created through the frontal, two temporals, the occipital, the sphenoid, as well as the ethmoid bones.
They are the set of bones that surround the brain and brain stem. Cranium refers to the part of the skull surrounding the brain. The top part of the skull from front to back is also referred to as the neurocranium. There are several types of bones in the body and two different types of bones exist in the cranium: flat bones and irregular bones.
Symptoms of a structural issue with the cranial bones include: 1 a dull, aching pain. 2 numbness or tingling in your face. 3 hearing or vision problems. 4 unusually shaped head or facial features.
