What Is the Function of the Foramen Magnum?

Answer

The foramen magnum literally translates to 'very big opening.' Remembering this can you recall that the foramen magnum is the big opening that is on the backside of the skull where the spinal cord and its components come into the skull. This allows for the brain to effectively transmit information and direction through the spinal cord to the rest of the body.
