What exactly is the Occipitofrontalis? A couple people I asked said that it's the Frontalis and the Occipitalis combined, but they're on the opposite sides of the head.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occipitofrontalis_muscleThe occipitofrontalis or epicranius is a muscle which covers parts of the skull. It consists of two parts or bellies: The occipital belly, near the occipital bone, and the frontal belly, near the frontal bone.
Some sources consider the occipitofrontalis to be a structure consisting of two distinct muscles, the Frontalis and the occipitalis. However, Terminologia Anatomica currently classifies it as a single muscle.
