We summarize our recent results for the quark loop part of the light-by-light scattering contribution as well as the hadronic vacuum polarisation contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. In particular we focus on the role played by the momentum dependence of the quark- and quark-photon vertex dressing functions. We give a detailed comparison of the Dyson-Schwinger description of this contribution to the corresponding picture emerging from hadronic models in particular the extended Nambu--Jona-Lasonio model (ENJL). We find that the details of the momentum dependence are important on a quantitative level. Especially the transverse parts of the quark-photon-vertex, which serve as a dynamical extension of simple vector meson dominance models, do not yield the large suppression of the light-by-light contribution found in the ENJL model if realistic dressings are taken into account.
