Facial Skeleton

Remember we already learned that the head bone or human skull is called the cranium,
and that the part in the back of your head that holds your brain is called the neurocranium

The part in the front that has your face is called your facial skeleton, viscerocranium or splanchocranium.

It's everything from your forehead to your nose to your cheeks and mouth.
