Ring finger - Definition


Definition

Fourth finger of the hand, the ring finger is located between the middle finger and little finger. It owes its name to the fact that he is wearing the wedding ring. First finger to form the fetal stage, the ring is like the other fingers consisting of the metacarpal bone, tendons, cartilage and three phalanges, without forgetting the dermis, epidermis and nail.

Digit ratio

Comparing the size of the ring than the index, it is possible to determine the digit ratio (index by Manning), the sex of an individual (and thus a skeleton).
