what attaches to the pharyngeal tubercle?
True or False: the stylopharyngeus, salpingopharyngeus, and palatopharyngeus serve to shorten and widen pharynx during swallowing and speaking.
this portion of the pharynx is bounded by the soft palate superiorly, the base of the tongue inferiorly and the platoglossal and platopharyngeal arches laterally

a rib which arises from the seventh cervical vertebrae (above the normal first rib).
anterior border of the posterior cervical triangle
triangle located between Between body of hyoid bone and right and left anterior bellies of the digastric muscles
portion of the pharynx that is posterior to the nose and superior to the soft palate
2nd portion of the subclavian artery
innervation anterior belly of digastric muscle
(from C2 and C3 roots) ascends superiorly across SCM. Supplies the skin over parotid, posterior auricle, and skin from mandible to mastoid process
