By studying fresh cranial bone
specimens and employing various testing means, Dr Upledger's team confirmed the existence of cranial bone
motion and attained precise measurements of the frequency and amplitude of cranial bone

Neuro Cranial Integration (NCI) is a technique that realigns the brain, cranial bones
, and the facial and muscle tissues, allowing for higher functioning of the nervous system throughout the entire body.
The adaptability and pliability of the cranial fascial layers is essential to free motion of the underlying sutures and cranial bones
Among cranial bones
, the mandible was the most frequently completely preserved bone (23.
1) These neoplasms most commonly arise in the vertebral bodies, but when they do occur in the cranial bones
, the frontal and parietal locations are most common.
These include an array of stone-tool cut marks similar to those found on butchered animals, fractures produced by severe blows, skull abrasions generated by stones striking larger stone anvils placed atop the head, discoloration and cracking due to burning, limb-bone breaks that expose marrow, a predominance of cranial bones
and scarcity of vertebrae, and few signs of bone weathering or animal gnawing (indicating that bone damage and the covering of remains occurred at or around the time of death).
The physician's goal is to correct the underlying abnormalities that derail normal brain function, such as intracranial strain patterns, obstructions to optimal fluid flow, and compression of cranial bones
Current diagnoses of porotic hyperostosis with its remodeling of cranial bones
in a sufferer with anaemia focus upon iron deficiency in the diet, although the phenotypic expression of abnormal haemoglobins should not be excluded from consideration, a subject that deserves more attention than covered here.
Because fibrous dysplasia shows a predilection for the facial and cranial bones
, where it causes deformity and dysfunction, the disease is of particular interest to the otolaryngologist.
These include an angling of the cranium that produced a bony ridge at the top of the head, thick cranial bones
, a cleft in the bone just behind the ear and a plateau-like bony swelling at the back of the head.
