1 Ventricle of larynx. Ventriculus laryngis [[Morgagni]]. Lateral outpocketings between the vocal and vestibular folds. BCD

2 Saccule (appendix) of larynx. Sacculus laryngis [[appendix ventriculi laryngis]]. Small blind sac directed upward from the ventricle. B

3 Glottis. Voice-producing part of the larynx consisting of the two vocal folds and the interval (Rima glottidis) between them. A

4 Rima glottidis. Space between the two aryte-noid cartilages and the vocal cords. A

5 Vocal fold. Plica vocalis. Mucosal fold supported by the underlying vocal ligament and laterally by the vocalis muscle. A

6 Intermembranous part. Pars intermem-branacea. Portion of the rima glottidis extending from the thyroid cartilage to the apex of the vocal process. A

7 Intercartilaginous part. Pars intercar-tilaginea. Portion of rima glottidis between the arytenoid cartilages. A

7 a Interarytenoid fold. Plica interarytenoidea.


8 Infraglottic cavity. Cavitas infraglottica. Lowest portion of laryngeal cavity. It is enclosed by the conus elasticus and extends from the rima glot-tidis to the trachea. C

9 Fibroelastic membrane of larynx. Membrana fibroelastica laryngis [[membrana elastica laryngis]].Submucosaoflaryngealwallprovided with abundant elastic fibers. It begins at the quadrangular membrane and ends at the lower margin of the conus elasticus. B

10 Quadrangular membrane. Membrana quad-rangularis. Membrane spread out between the epiglottis, aryepiglottic fold and vestibular fold. CD

11 Vestibular ligament. Lig. vestibulare. It strengthens the lower margin of the quadrangular membrane. C

12 Conus elasticus (membrana cricovocalis).

Reinforced fibroelastic membrane between the vocal ligament and cricoid. D

13 Vocal ligament. Lig. vocale. It lies between the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage and the thyroid cartilage and forms the upper end of the conus elasticus. C

14 Tunica mucosa. Laryngeal mucous membrane provided with nonkeratinized, stratified squamous epithelium only on the upper part of the posterior surface of the epiglottis and on the vocal folds; the rest of the larynx is lined with pseudostratified, ciliated columnar epithelium with goblet cells. B

15 Laryngeal glands. Gll. laryngeales. Mixed glands occupying the submucosa of the laryn-geal wall. B

16 Lymph nodes of larynx. [[Nodi lymphatici laryngis]]. Lymphatic nodules are abundant in the submucosa of the ventricle. B

Essentials of Human Physiology

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
