Intercostal muscles are several groups of muscles that run between the ribs, and help form and move the chest wall.

The intercostal arteries are a group of arteries which supply the area between the Ribs ("costae" called the Intercostal space.

The thoracic cavity (or chest cavity) is the chamber of the human body (and other animal bodies that is protected by the Thoracic wall ( Thoracic cage
There are three principal layers;
Located around the the ribs
Both the external and internal muscles are innervated by the intercostal nerves (the ventral rami of thoracic spinal nerves), and are provided by the intercostal arteries and intercostal veins. The Innermost intercostal muscle is a layer of Intercostal muscle beneath the Intercostal nerves and Internal intercostal muscles. The intercostal nerves are the anterior divisions (rami anteriores ventral divisions of the Thoracic spinal nerves from T1 to T11 The ventral ramus ( anterior ramus, anterior branch, anterior divisions of the spinal nerves) supply the antero-lateral parts of the trunk and the limbs The thoracic nerves are the Spinal nerves emerging from the Thoracic vertebrae. The intercostal arteries are a group of arteries which supply the area between the Ribs ("costae" called the Intercostal space. The intercostal veins are a group of veins which drain the area between the Ribs ("costae" called the Intercostal space. Their fibers run in opposite directions.
Besides the scaleni, which also move the chest wall and have a function in inhalation, other intercostal muscles are:
