the two components of the vertebral discs are _______________ and __________________ annulus fibrosis and nucleus pulposus
the superior and inferior articular processes form what type of joint? synovial, called facet joints
which part of the spine is most mobile? cervical
vertical projection on the axis is called the .... Odontoid process or Dens. Held in place by the transverse ligament!
Atlanto-Occipital joint (AO) articulates..... with ....... atlas and occipital bone of skull

facet joints in the thoracic vertebrae and oriented ______________ frontal plane
where does the rib articulate at the thoracic vertebrae? the rib articulates with the superior facet of the vertebrae above and the inferior vertebrae of another. EX: the 6th rib articulates with the inferior costal facet of the 5th vertebrae and the superior costal facet of the 6th vertebrae
costotransverse articulation where the tip of the transverse process articulates with the costal tubercle of the rib
