I had hardly expected so dolichocephalic
a skull or such well-marked supra-orbital development.
It was found that more than half (60%) tended to have a mesocephalic face, while 20% had dolichocephalic
and 20%, brachycephalic face.
All the skulls studied classified as dolichocephalic
(34 male/ 16 female), mesocephalic (29 male/ 32 female) and brachycephalic (21 male/ 18 female) were free from macroscopic abnormalities.
His extraoral examination revealed that he had a dolichocephalic
facial type with a convex profile, protrusive lower lip, and inconsistent lip closure with mental muscle hyperactivity (Figure 1a-h).
Patients were classified into three groups according to the morphology of the skull in brachycephalic, dolichocephalic
Only then it becomes clear that the slender light-built dolichocephalic
deerhound which hunts by sight should be referred to as kurtas in Lithuanian and as [phrase omitted] in Russian and the heavy-built staghound which is used to hunt the deer by scent or blood trail is skalikas in Lithuanian and [phrase omitted] in Russian.
All speech and hearing impaired children studied are dolichocephalic
Lip projection analysis in brachycephalic, dolichocephalic
and mesocephalic individuals of a Mexican population.
Scientific studies provided a major distinction in that regard--the classification of human skulls as dolichocephalic
and brachycephalic (with intermediary types in between).
(long narrow face) pattern may be conducive to mouth-breathing, rather than mouth-breathing causing a dolichocephalic
However, his lean austere face, with a doming forehead and receding hairline, thin lips, deeply set eyes and straight blade-like nose--the dolichocephalous type, as James Mortimer, one of his clients identifies and aptly describes him, "so dolichocephalic
a skull or such well-marked supra-orbital development" in The Hound of Baskerville (1902: 586)--can be successfully associated with the reader's mental image of the detective, more so, perhaps, than many of the subsequent Holmes impersonations on stage or on the screen.
Between these two distinct canine cranium shapes are many variations that are also breed specific but can't be neatly categorized as brachycephalic or dolichocephalic
, such as the rounded skull of the Chihuahua or the downward pointing snout of the Bull terrier.
