Acrania is reserved for cases where the entire neurocranium
(including the skull and skull base) is absent with complete but abnormal development of brain tissue.
Bandages or strips of bark tightly wrapped around the baby's head exerted equal pressure on the whole neurocranium
and led therefore to circular erect heads.
Those studies considered morphological characteristics, neurocranium
patterns and vomero-palatine tooth patches.
(2013b): A new titanosaur sauropod neurocranium
from the Late Cretaceous of Spain.
 studied the growth patterns of neurocranium
, faces, and mandibles from Neanderthals and modern humans.
Facial width and maximum width of neurocranium
were 10.26 [+ or -] 0.21 and 5.99 [+ or -] 0.13 cm, respectively (Table 1, Figure 1).
INTRODUCTION: The skull is composed of the neurocranium
which surrounds the brain, eyes and inner plus middle ears, and the viscerocranium which is derived from the frontonasal and first arch mesenchyme and forms the facial skeleton.
The articulations of the neurocranium
