Hello, everyone. This is Joao from Kenhub,
and welcome to another anatomy tutorial where, this time, we’re going to be talking about
a group of four muscles that are known as the suboccipital muscles, which you can see
now on the image. We’re looking at a posterior view of the
neck and also your head of course, you see here. And this is where the suboccipital muscles
are located, just below this bone here, which is known as the occipital bone. Hence the
name, suboccipital muscle. So in anatomy, we try to keep things very
simple. And without keeping you waiting, let’s first
list these four muscles before we talk about their origins, insertion, and also innervation,
and functions associated to these suboccipital muscles. There are two. They are the rectus
capitis posterior minor and then the major one, so the rectus capitis posterior major. There are other two which have similar names.
The obliquus capitis inferior and then the superior one… Hey guys, as you can see, this video is a
