The skull base is the bottom portion of the skull and is significantly more complex than the front, back and sides of the skull. The intricate nature of the skull base is derived from the fact that all nerves in the body carrying signals to and from the brain, as well as the large vessels carrying blood to and from the brain, pass through the skull base.
