Tutorials and quizzes on muscles that act on the forearm (forearm muscles), using interactive animations and diagrams.
Brachialis Muscle (Insertion, Origin, Actions & Innervations); explained beautifully in an illustrated and interactive way.
Anconeus muscle is a small muscle that is triangular in shape. It’s sometimes blended with triceps brachii or extensor carpi ulnaris. It arises from the humerus to later insert on the olecranon of the ulna.
Brachioradialis is one of the muscles that comprise the posterior compartment of the forearm. It is the most superficial muscle of the radial side of the forearm, forming the lateral wall of the cubital fossa.
Pronator teres is one of the muscles of the superficial flexor group of the anterior forearm compartment. Arising with two heads from the humerus and ulna to finally insert on the lateral surface of the radius body.
The lateral head of the Triceps brachii, one of three heads of the muscle, originates from the humerus, superior to the radial groove to insert on the olecranon process.
The long head of the Triceps brachii is one of three heads that make up the muscle. It descends between teres minor and major, dividing the wedge-shaped interval between them and the humerus into triangular and quadrangular spaces.
The medial head of the Triceps brachii arises from inferior two-thirds of the humerus to insert, along with the other two heads of the triceps, on the olecranon of the ulna.
