Mineralization first £ ANATOMY begins in bones at a primary centre of ossification and secondary centres that may appear later eventually coalesce with them to form a single bone. The appearance of ossification centres throughout the skeleton occurs in a regular sequence in a given species. Clusters of cells within a connective-tissue membrane begin to secrete a matrix called osteoid which consists mainly of collagen fibres together with a complex mixture of 'ground substance' proteins, including osteo­ calcin, osteonectin, sialoproteins and proteog­ lycans.

Typically, there are two parietal emissary veins that pass right through this bone and mark obelion (the mid-line point on the sagittal suture between the parietal emissary 37 AN INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN EVOLUTIONARY ANATOMY S q u a m o u s part of occipital Diploe Condylar part of occipital Occipital diploic Temporal diploic vein Anterior occipital synchondosis FIGURE 4-9 The diploe of the vault bones.

The mental foramen is usually situated below and between the position of the root apices of the premolar teeth. Because of the way the mandible grows the opening of the mental foramen usually points backwards in modern humans. The internal or lingual surface of the mandibular body is marked by a ridge, the mylohyoid line that indicates the line of attachment of the mylohyoid muscle that lies THE BONES OF THE SKULL across the floor of the mouth (Fig.
