[Truncated] Uncinate processes are found on the cervical vertebral bodies of humans and other mammals and they participate in uncovertebral joints at the sides of the intervertebral disc. The effect of this anatomical arrangement on cervical spinal motion is unresolved. To investigate uncinated process function, 103 species have been surveyed, and samples of 4 species (human, kangaroo, dog & horse) have been studied in depth.
