    Lamina affixa

    Lamina affixa is a layer of epithelium growing on the surface of the thalamus and forming the floor of the central part of lateral ventricle, on whose medial margin is attached the choroid plexus of the lateral ventricle; it covers the superior thalamostriate vein and the superior choroidal vein. The torn edge of this plexus is called the tela choroidea.

    Orbital lamina of ethmoid bone

    The orbital lamina of ethmoid bone, (or lamina papyracea or orbital lamina) is a smooth, oblong bone plate which forms the lateral surface of the labyrinth of the ethmoid bone in the skull. The plate covers in the middle and posterior ethmoidal cells and forms a large part of the medial wall of the orbit.

    Lamina Sankoh (28 June 1884 – 1964), born as Etheldred Nathaniel Jones, was a Sierra Leonean pre-independence politician, educator, banker and cleric. Sankoh is known most prominently for helping to found the Peoples Party in 1948, one of the first political parties in Sierra Leone. It eventually became the Sierra Leone People's Party.

  • Cistern of lamina terminalis

    The cistern of lamina terminalis is one of the a subarachnoid cisterns in the subarachnoid space in the brain. It lies in front of (rostral to) the lamina terminalis and anterior commissure between the two frontal lobes of the cerebrum. The cistern contains cerebrospinal fluid, and connects the chiasmatic cistern to the pericallosal cistern. The anterior cerebral artery and the anterior communicating artery travel within this cistern.

  • Vestibular lamina

    The vestibular lamina is responsible for the formation of the vestibule (the space bordered by the junction of the gingiva and the tissue of the inner cheek ) and arises from a group of cells called the primary epithelial band. This band is created at about 37 days of development in utero. The vestibular lamina forms shortly after the dental lamina and is positioned right in front of it. The vestibule is formed by the proliferation of the vestibular lamina into the ectomesenchyme. The vestibular lamina is usually contrasted with the dental lamina, which develops concurrently and is involved with developing teeth. Both the vestibular lamina and the dental lamina arise from a group of epithelial cells, called the primary epithelial band.

  • Lamina emergent mechanism

    Lamina Emergent Mechanisms (also known as LEMs) are more commonly referred to as "Pop-up Mechanisms" as seen in "pop-up-books". LEM is the technical term of such mechanisms or engineering. LEMs are a subset of compliant mechanisms fabricated from planar materials (lamina) and have motion emerging from the fabrication plane. LEMs use compliance, or the deflection of flexible members to achieve motion.
