This is a special four-part series on the human head, neck and skull. Medical students can greatly benefit from watch this anatomy video series. Dr. Gita Sinha "dissects" all of the information pertaining to the head and neck. Dr. Sinha is Assistant Professor for the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology at Dalhouse University. Each of these videos cover a different topic:
1. The Skull and the Intracranial Region
This part discusses the osteology of the human skull. See all of the different bones of the skull and learn about the different openings at the base of the skull, where all of the cranial nerves pass through. See the facial bones, sutures, bones of the vault, the mandible, the cranial fossae, coverings of the brain, and the dural venous sinuses.

3. Trigeminal Nerve and Infratemporal Fossa
In this part, learn about the trigeminal nerve and the infratemporal fossa. First see the presentation of the trigeminal nerve, its three branches and its distribution. Then learn about the contents of the infratemporal fossa.
4. Anterior and Posterior Triangles of the Neck
