New Insights in Bone Biology | Amgen

Learn from Amgen about the basics of bone biology, including the role and functions of the cells responsible for breaking down bone tissue (osteoclasts), building new bone (osteoblasts) and the musculoskeletal system. Provides details on bone remodeling, bone modeling, postemenopausal osteoporosis and cancer treatment induced bone loss due to hormone ablation.




We accept submissions of major research articles, case-studies of impact, brief communications, and technical notes, along with Special Issues which reflect key themes within paleopathology.

Osteology + Anatomy Tips

If you're an osteology or anatomy student seeking tips and tricks, an instructor looking for engaging identification and siding tutorials, or are simply  interested in learning more about human bones, look no further! On this page I've compiled links to all of my identification and siding posts, many of which come with printable pdfs. The posts…

The human head is comprised of 23 different bones. The Cranium,
also called the "Skull," describes the skeleton that comprises

mandible). In an adult, various bones of the cranium are paired
(i.e., consist of a left and a right) while others which cross
the mid-sagittal plane are unpaired.

eSkeletons provides an interactive environment in which to examine and learn about skeletal anatomy through our osteology database. If you have problems using this site, or have other questions, please feel free to contact us.

This site provides image-based quizzes of various cranial and post-cranial bones. It's no substitute for lab study, but good review in a pinch for when you don't have lab access.
