The mandibular fossa is the cavity in the temporal bone that enables interaction with the mandibular condyle. The mandibular fossa of the temporal bone borders with articular tubercle in the front and is separated from the external acoustic meatus by the tympanic part of the bone on the backside.
The glenoid fossa blastema, which arises from the otic capsule, undergoes intramembranous ossification.
