The skull is not one big bone, it’s a collection of bones making up the cranium and the facial bones.
Temporal bone is simply the heads temple, sphenoid bone (coming from the word sphere) is located behind the sphere object, the EYE! The lower part of the mouth is referred to as the mandible, because manducate means to chew, mand- refers to chewing! Maxilla is right above the mandible, because MAX is short for maximum and maxilla is greater than the mandible, therefore it’s above it. More later! @rev.med
