ABSTRACT
Cranial capacities were calculated from the external head measurements reported for 36 samples of 7 to 15 year olds gathered by the Philadelphia Growth Center (Krogman, 1970). The core sample consisted of 169 white males, 224 black mates, 135 white females, and 220 black females. After adjusting for the effects of age, stature and sex, white children averaged 1250 cm³ and black children averaged 1236 cm³. After adjusting for the effects of age, stature and race, boys averaged 1300 cm² and girls averaged 1186 cm³.

    The aim of this study is to establish pattern of head dimensions of Nigerian children 5-15 years. The subjects of this study were 377 Nigerian children, boys (n = 173) and girls (n = 204) with mean age 9.87 + 3.22 and 10.11 + 302 respectively. Head dimensions traits measured were head length,...

    The main goal of the study was to determine on MRI the cranial sutures, the craniometric points and craniometric measurements, and to correlate these results with classical anthropometric measurements. For this purpose, we reviewed 150 cerebral MRI examinations considered as normal (Caucasian...

    The sutures of the skulls of vertebrates are generally open early in life and slowly close as maturity is attained. The assumption that all vertebrates follow this pattern of progressive sutural closure has been used to assess maturity in the fossil remains of non-avian dinosaurs. Here, we test...

    The physical anthropology of the urban people of the 13th-18th centuries in Estonia is relatively seldom studied, although some research has been conducted in the 1990s on the basis of urban medieval and post medieval osteologic materials (1,2,3,4,5). The present paper publices one part of the...

    Background: Surgical approach towards asterion has to be done with caution as many surgeons are unfamiliar with the anatomical variations. The asterion corresponds to the site of the posterolateral (mastoid) fontanelle of the neonatal skull which closes at the end of the first year. Inca bones...
