The first cervical vertebra; so called from its supporting the whole weight of the head, as Atlas is said to have supported the globe on his shoulders. Chaussier calls it Atloide. This vertebra in no respect resembles the others. It is a kind of irregular ring, into which, anteriorly, the processus dentatus of the second vertebra is received. Posteriorly, it gives passage to the medulla spinalis.

The first cervical vertebra, consisting of an anterior and a posterior arch and two lateral masses. The body, instead of being consolidated with it, constitutes the odontoid process of the second vertebra upon which it turns in rotation of the head. The a. articulates above with the condyles of the occipital bone, allowing the nodding movements of the head. [Gr.]
