A Memoir on the Phylogeny of the Jaw Muscles in Recent and Fossil Vertebrates (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Memoir on the Phylogeny of the Jaw Muscles in Recent and Fossil Vertebrates This paper attempts first to trace the muscles of mastication from their origin in the primitive gnathostomes to their perfected development in the higher vertebrates and secondly to discover the co-adaptations of musculature and skull structure. There has been a great neglect of the correlation between osteology and myology. Hundreds of monographs are at hand on both subjects, yet synthetic studies that deal with both and with their interrelationships are extremely rare. As muscle was no doubt in existence before bone, and as there is the closest relation between the two, we should naturally con sider myology and osteology together instead of under separate heads.
