transverse head

trans·verse head

[TA]
head of origin of a muscle that is transversely situated. Terminologia Anatomica lists transverse heads (caput transversum ...) of the following: 1) adductor hallucis [TA] (... musculi adductoris hallucis [TA]); and 2) adductor pollicis [TA] (... musculi adductoris pollicis [TA]).
Synonym(s): caput transversum [TA]

Regarding the same measurements of the transverse head were 39.55 ([+ o -] 8.26), 15.04 ([+ o -] 3.52) and 18.51 ([+ o -] 10.04), respectively.
hedayati Buhl, 2010, from Tanzania in respect of head shape but with more transverse head, much shorter antennae, smoother T2, and lighter-coloured body appendages.
However, P malaisei Buhl, 2005, has a more transverse head, mid lobe of mesoscutum shorter, propodeal carinae slightly divergent, and female metasoma as long as rest of body.
The transverse head of adductor pollicis was innervated exclusively by deep branch of ulnar nerve in 77 (96.4%) (Fig.
In the same year, Riche (1897) described three types of connections: Type I, between the deep branch of ulnar nerve and the branch of the median nerve, destined to both heads of the FPB; Type II, between the deep branch of ulnar nerve and the median nerve within the belly of the transverse head of the adductor pollicis; Type III, between these two nerves within the belly of the lumbrical muscle.
The superficial head was double innervated in 24 out 80 (30%) hands, oblique head of adductor pollicis in in 14 hands (17.5 %) a transverse head in 3 hands (3.6%).

Comparative evaluations were made by the experimental cutting of oil shale in both directions--along and across the bedding, including also mining-scale experiments with cutting heads rotating round horizontal (transverse heads) and vertical axes (longitudinal heads).

The change in the magnitude of the resultant boom force reaction during a transition from arcing to lifting is relatively high for the transverse heads, depending on cutting head design.
