The articular processes (zygapophyses), four in number, two on each side, spring from the junction of the pedicles with the laminae. ' — Transverse Processes (processus transversa) The transverse processes, two in number, project one at each side from the point where the lamina joins the pedicle, between the superior and inferior articular processes. They serve for the attachment of muscles and ligaments. The Cervical Vertebrae (Vertebrae The Cervicales) (Fig. 15). cervical vertebrte are smaller than those in and may be readily distinguished by the foramen any other region of the spine, in the transverse process, which does not exist in the transverse process of either a thoracic or lumbar vertebra.
