#105 cranial vault

id: ZFA:0005606
name: cranial vault
def: "Anatomical cluster that forms the roof over the brain." [ZFA:curator]

An anatomical cluster of what?

The relationships are fairly minimal:

is_a: ZFA:0001478  ! anatomical cluster
relationship: end ZFS:0000044 ! Adult
relationship: start ZFS:0000000 ! Unknown

I think it would be safe to say part_of head.

What are the bones that constitute the roof in zebrafish? Are they all dermal? If so consider making part_of dermatocranium

    Then make it part_of ZFA:0000737 ! cranium

    Can you also make the text def list the bones.

    Made part of neurocranium. Added joints and the "overlaps" relationship to the bones making up the joints. In this case the bones actually do overlap not articulate so seemed like an ok relation to use.
