A broad number of muscles are connected to the scapula and thus controll the movement of the shoulder and arm. The serratus is connected to the inner side of the scapula and the first eight ribs on the side of the chest. Its rather characteristic serrated shape is often mistaken as being part of the ribs.
The rhomboids connect the scapula with the vertebra and help to hold the scapula onto the ribcage. Additionally a contraction pulls the scapula back towards the vertrebra.
