There are inflections of the head upon the atlas, but they are very inconsiderable: consisting of inflections forwards, which are performed by the, 1. Recti capitis interni minores--2. Recti capitis laterales: of inflections backivaril, Which are performed by. the, 1. Recti capitis postici minores--2. Obliqui capitis superiores; and of lateralinflections by these imiscles at the sides. But the principal motions of the head'are1 "produced by the inflections of the cervical vertebrae; which may be beat forivards or backwards, and to either side, and give a corresponding inclination to the head. Likewise in consequence of the mode of articulation between the first and second vertebrae, the former, together with the head, may perform a motion of rotation upon the latter. Therefore the muscles moving the head and cervical vertebrae may be arranged as--a. Inflectors Forward, b. Inflectors Backward, C. Rotators To The Right, d. Rotators To The Left. It will not be necessary to particu larize the muscles which inflect laterally, as all the muscles which are described as inflectors forward and backward, must exert a force in the lateral direction when used only on one side, except those which are situated close to the median plane. a.
