Axial skeleton:  consisting of bones that lie around longitudinal axis of the human body, an imaginary vertical line that  runs through the body’s center of gravity from the head to the space between the feet: skull bones,  auditory ossicles (ear bones), hyoid bone, ribs, sternum (breastbone), and bones of the vertebral column.  Appendicular skeleton  consists of bones of upper and lower limbs, or appendages  limbs are made up of bones that form the limb girdles and bones that form free limbs. In this chapter we focus on the axial skeleton:  looking first at the skull  the bones of the vertebral column and the chest
