The occipital bone is located on the back of the skull. The occipital protuberance can be seen/felt on the back of the head, as it is the rather large bump. This occipital bone encloses a large oval hole called the foramen magnum which allows the spinal cord to pass through.
The foramen magnum is found in the inferior (lower/bottom) aspect of the occipital bone.occipital bone
This is located at the back of the head; the area that covers the occipital bone.
The frontal bone is anterior to the occipital bone.
Hueso Occipital (Hueso = bone) (Occipital = the same)
One is the occipital bone.Occipital bone
The occipital bone is found at the back of the head also forms part of the skull that rests on the spinal column.
occipital bone Optical nerve.
The lambdoid suture connects the parietal bone of the skull to the occipital bone of the skull.
the forearm magnum goes through the occipital bone
The occipital bone joins with the two parietal bones at the lambdoidal suture.
Flat bone / skull bone
The parietal bone and occipital bone are connected by the lambdoid suturethe occipital, parietal and temporal bonesWikipedia says: The lambdoid suture (or lambdoidal suture) is a dense, fibrous connective tissue joint on the posterior aspect of the skull that connects the parietal and temporal bones with the occipital bone.The Lambdiod suture connects the occipital bone to the parietal bones and the mastoid part of the temporal bone.The lambdoid suture joins the occipital bone to the parietal bones.occipital and parietal bonesLambdoid suture(s): separates the parietal bones and the occipital bone; it arches across the back of the skull ending bilateral where the parietal and occipital bones meets the temporal bone.occipital and parietal bone
The first cervical vertebra, called C1 or the atlas, articulates with the occipital bone.

The Occipital Bone
Most bones are paired but their are plenty of exceptions: frontal bone, occipital bone, ethmoid bone, sphenoid bone, mandible, all your vertebrae to name a few.
The occipital bone articulates with the first cervical vertebra. This articulation happens at a marking on the occipital bone called the occipital condyle.
C1 or the atlas is the uppermost cervical vertebra upon which the skull aticuluates. The atlas articulates with skull at the occipital condyle of the occipital bone.
