Skull tutorial. – From Gateway Community College, Phoenix best l have seen for identification of foramina and major bony points of the skull – great work but could do with some text to fill in the gaps like what structures pass through these foramina so l would use this database with one from Emory University.

Origin, course and distribution of cranial nerves. – Interesting database from Loyola University very booklike there is a lot of text; however the images are osteological rather than cadaveric and you wonder about the course and relations of the cranial nerves – a good picture is worth a thousand words!

Cross sectional anatomy. – From Loyola University part of the Lumen Dissector (MRI, movie), overall OK but you really need to know your anatomy to benefit from this work.
