In human anatomy, the forehead or brow is the bony part of the head above the eyes.


In modern humans it is roughly vertical, ending at the hairline where the head flattens out. Muscles of the forehead include the frontalis, which moves and contracts the forehead's scalp.


Historically, the word has rhymed with "horrid" RP: Template:IPA, General American: Template:IPA, but the spelling pronunciation RP: Template:IPA, GenAm: Template:IPA has become more common in recent years.
