Humerus Points to know Lesser tuberosity – medial point of muscle attachment Posterior view
Humerus Points to know Deltoid tuberosity – Roughened site for rotator cuff attachment Posterior view
Humerus Points to know Trochlea – Articulation for the ulna Posterior view
Humerus Points to know Capitulum – “ball like” attachment for radius Posterior view
Humerus Points to know Epicondyles – Ulnar n. runs behind medial epicondyle Posterior view
Humerus Coronoid fossa – Anterior fossa allows for ulna to articulate when flexion happens Olecranon fossa – Posterior fossa allows for ulna to articulate when extension happens
Antebrachium or Forearm Proximally articulate with humerus Distally articulate with carpal bones Radius and Ulna Attach twice at radioulnar joints Interosseous membrane between the two
Ulna What comes after L? Forms the Elbow! Olecranon process Coronoid process – Together form the hinge joint with humerus
Ulna info While a large part of elbow, very little influence on wrist Separated by fribrocartilaginous disc from wrist Distally ends in head and styloid process Where else did we see styloid process?
Radius major forearm bone That at proximal end wide distally – (Opposite ulna) Very little contribution to elbow Large influence on wrist! Meaning: You move the radius, the hand will move!
Radius markings Head like a nail Radial tuberosity – anchors bicep
Radius markings Styloid process is distall – anchors ligaments to wrist

“Getting a Grip” questions 1.According to the author, what made Richard Owen a genius? 2.What is the theme of this book? 3.What pattern does Owen recognize? 4.What does Darwin claim is responsible for the similarities in animal limbs? 5.What about the lung fish is not a coincidence at all? 6.Why is Ichthyostega a “let down?”
What is connected to the wristwatch? (The distal forearm ) The Wrist 8 bones – connected by ligaments 2 rows of marble sized bones Form roof for median nerve and tendons to travel through http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqImkDgD wHU
