In fact, these pivots, gathered in a two-by-two arrangement, control the axes of movement of the parietal bones and of their articulations with the frontal bone and the occipital bone. The movements of the paired peripheral bones, which take place about variable oblique axes, produce external rotation during their phase of expansion and internal rotation during the relaxation phase. Let us look at the movements of these bones one by one. 55 PA RT O N E : Cranial Biomechanics 56 Biomechanical features The movements of the temporal bone are very complex and take place around three axes, which permit these movements to be spatially finely tuned.

In fact, the squamous and petrous parts of the temporal bone form two planes that intersect at about 90°. Each part has three pivots, around which each suture moves in a different way, allowing the bone to adopt an infinite number of orientations in space. The petrous part contains the three orthogonally arranged semicircular canals. The external auditory canal forms an angle of 10° with the occipital bone. This resembles the mobility of the cervical column, the main goal of which is to ensure that vision is horizontal.

Its general structure, which is arched and plastic with well-developed lines of force, makes it supple and resistant. ), which in turn allow small displacements to occur. These bones lie at the edges of the cranial cavity, and all of them move about their axes with different degrees of obliquity. Only one axis will be mentioned here for each movement described. This simple approach is for teaching purposes, and one must bear in mind that the axis of any movement changes direction as the movement proceeds and that these successive axes will describe a particular curve in space called the cardioid.
