We investigated the sequence and the intensity in the appearance and the disappearance of the impressiones gyrorum cerebri and cerebelli, of juga cerebralia and cerebellaria and of juga cerebellaria interlobularia in the collection of 34 macerated and disarticulated skull bones from the newborn to 30 years of age (68 specimens-halves of skulls) and 19 skulls in the period from 30 to 80 years of age (38 specimens). Juga cerebralia on the squama of the temporal bone and cerebral lamina of the frontal bone appeared already in the course of the first year of life, much earlier than cited in the literature. The intensity of the development of juga cerebralia increased to the third decade. After that age, the intensity decreased gradually, and the juga cerebralia disappeared completely in parietal bones, in the cerebral fossae of the occipital bones and finally in most cases also on the cerebral lamina of the frontal bones. Juga cerebellaria and impressiones gyrorum cerebelli appeared in the middle of the second year of age and persisted to the ten years of age, which coincides with the closure of the fissures among the parts of the occipital bone. Jugum cerebellare intersemilunare appeared in the first year of life and persisted in its complete length, or interrupted in different sections of its course, during the whole life. The intensity in appearance of juga is partly influenced by the increasing thickness of the diploe.
