MeSH Chin

In the human anatomy, the chin is the lowermost part of the face.


It is formed by the lower front of the mandible.

People show a wide variety of chin structures. See Cleft chin.

The chin developed as a point of muscular attachment facilitating minute movements of the lips associated with speech. In human evolution, the chin is a cladistic apomorphy, partially defining anatomically modern Humans as distinct from archaic forms.
