The head is a complex structure composed of various parts, including bones, muscles, organs, and other tissues. Here’s a detailed overview of the main components that make up the head:


The skull is a bony structure that forms the head’s framework and protects the brain. It is divided into two main parts:

Cranium: Encloses and protects the brain. It consists of the following bones:

  • Frontal bone (forehead)
  • Parietal bones (sides and roof of the cranium)
  • Temporal bones (sides and base of the skull)
  • Occipital bone (back and base of the skull)
  • Sphenoid bone (base of the cranium, behind the eyes)
  • Ethmoid bone (between the eyes, contributes to the nasal cavity)

Facial Skeleton: Supports the structures of the face and includes:

  • Nasal bones (bridge of the nose)
  • Maxillae (upper jaw and parts of the eye sockets)
  • Zygomatic bones (cheekbones)
  • Mandible (lower jaw)
  • Lacrimal bones (part of the eye socket)
  • Palatine bones (part of the hard palate of the mouth and the nasal cavity)
  • Vomer (part of the nasal septum)
  • Inferior nasal conchae (inside the nasal cavity)


Muscles in the head are involved in facial expressions, chewing, and head movement:

  • Facial Muscles: Control expressions (e.g., orbicularis oculi, orbicularis oris, zygomaticus major, buccinator).
  • Masticatory Muscles: Involved in chewing (e.g., masseter, temporalis, medial pterygoid, lateral pterygoid).
  • Neck Muscles: Support head movement (e.g., sternocleidomastoid, trapezius).


The brain is the central organ of the nervous system, located within the cranium. It consists of:

  • Cerebrum: Responsible for higher brain functions, including thought, memory, and sensory processing.
  • Cerebellum: Coordinates movement and balance.
  • Brainstem: Controls basic life functions (e.g., breathing, heart rate). It includes the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata.

Sensory Organs

  • Eyes: Organs of vision located in the eye sockets (orbits).
  • Ears: Organs of hearing and balance, comprising the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear.
  • Nose: Organ of smell, including the nasal cavity and olfactory receptors.
  • Mouth: Contains the tongue (organ of taste) and teeth (for chewing).

Other Structures

  • Sinuses: Air-filled cavities within the bones of the face and skull (e.g., maxillary, frontal, ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses).
  • Salivary Glands: Produce saliva, aiding in digestion and oral health (e.g., parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands).
  • Scalp: The skin and tissue covering the skull.
  • Blood Vessels: Arteries and veins supplying blood to the brain and facial structures (e.g., carotid arteries, jugular veins).
  • Nerves: Cranial nerves that control sensory and motor functions (e.g., optic nerve, facial nerve, trigeminal nerve).

Mouth and Throat Structures

  • Tongue: Muscular organ involved in taste, speech, and swallowing.
  • Teeth: Structures for chewing food.
  • Pharynx (Throat): Passageway for food and air, leading to the oesophagus and trachea.
  • Larynx (Voice Box): Contains the vocal cords, involved in breathing, producing sound, and protecting the trachea against food aspiration.

Each part of the head plays a crucial role in various functions, from sensory perception and communication to protection and structural support. Understanding these components is essential for comprehending how the head operates as a whole.
