QS-8/3 – Natural size, in SOMSO-Plast, after Prof. Dr. J. W. Rohen , Department of Anatomy, University of Erlangen. The individual bones are identified by different colors. This version of the model eases learning of the shape and size of the individual bones and thereby assists in the understanding of the mosaic-like structure of the human skull. The model is constructed from 14 individual parts, which can easily be dismantled and put back together by way of interconnecting plugs. The sphenoid bone, occipital bone and the two temporal bones form the basis of the skull; the two parietal bones and the frontal bone attach to the anterior of the sphenoid bone. The facial part of the skull is then completed through attachment of the right and left maxilla, each of which also includes the lacrimal, nasal and palatine bone. Facial and cranial bones (viscerocranium and neurocranium) are connected to each other on each side by the zygomatic bone, which in the model is a separate element that can be individulally removed. The mandibula is fixed into sockets on either side of the skull through a hinge-joint. Weight: 700 g.
