Foramen Cecum

We just learned about the Sulcus Terminus.

Another part of the tongue is the Foramen Cecum.

Remember the median sulcus is the line that goes down the middle of your tongue.
At the back of your tongue, and at the end of that line is the foramen cecum.

We also learned that the sulcus terminus is a v shape at the back of the tongue.
In the middle of the v shape is the foramen cecum.

So right where the "median sulcus" line and "sulcus terminus" v shape meet is the "foramen cecum" point.
