Jump to: navigation, search

Frontalis is a muscle of the face that lies in the forehead. Some fibres merge with those of the orbital part of the orbicularis oculi. Posteriorly, it attaches to a broad, flat tendon, the epicranial aponeurosis, which extends over the scalp. The posterior end of the aponeurosis is joined to another superficial muscle (occipitalis) which attaches to the skull posteriorly.
