Anterior Neck Muscles

Anterior neck muscles are derived from cervical dermomyotome and include the muscles located between the chin and the claviculae bone, the three scalene muscles in the lateral neck connecting the vertebral column to the upper rib, and the prevertebral muscles connecting the occipital bone and the vertebrae. This group of muscles is used to flex and rotate the neck, connect the hyloid to the tongue, mandible and styloid.
