SKULL GLANDS Endocrine glands are glands that secrete their product (hormones) directly into the blood rather than through a duct. This group contains the glands of the Endocrine system. The main Endocrine glands include the pituitary gland, the pancreas, the gonads, the thyroid gland and the adrenal glands.

SKULL ANATOMY ORBITS (2) In anatomy, the orbit is the cavity or socket of the skull in which the eye and its appendages are situated.anatomyskulleye appendages It can also mean the skin which surrounds the eye of a bird. In the adult human, the volume of the orbit is 30 ml, of which the eye occupies 6.5 ml.

SKULL CEREBRAL VASCULAR SYSTEM -Thin and weak, have no valves. -Allows blood to flow in either direction, this is a problem because it may create a route for blood-borne-pathogens to pass from the body to the brain and the brain to the body…. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a membranic structure that acts primarily to protect the brain from chemicals in the blood, while still allowing essential metabolic function. It is composed of endothelial cells, which are packed very tightly in brain capillaries. This higher density restricts passage of substances from the bloodstream much more than endothelial cells in capillaries elsewhere in the body. Astrocyte cell projections called astrocytic feet (also known as "glial limitans") surround the endothelial cells of the BBB, providing biochemical support to those cells. The BBB is distinct from the similar blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier, a function of the choroidal cells of the choroid plexus. endothelialAstrocyteglial limitanschoroid plexus

MR FACE CORONAL12 Cranial Nerves Numbered from anterior to posterior, according to their attachment to the brain…All have specific functions; touch, smell, sight, hearing, etc….. Cranial nerves are nerves that emerge directly from the brain in contrast to spinal nerves which emerge from segments of the spinal cord. Although thirteen cranial nerves in humans fit this description, twelve are conventionally recognized. The nerves from the third onward arise from the brain stem.nervesbrainspinal nerves spinal cordhumans brain stem
