Frontal Lobe

The frontal lobe is located in the anterior part of the cerebral hemispheres: • Anterior to the parietal lobe. (The frontal lobe is separated from the parietal lobe by the central sulcus (of Rolando)). • Superior to the . (The frontal lobe is separated from the by the lateral fissure of Sylvius).

Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus is a portion of the brain near the third ventricle, located below the thalamus and above the brainstem. The anterior boundary of the hypothalamus is determined by the line connecting the anterior commissure, the lamina terminalis and the optic chiasm. The lower limit of the hypothalamus is formed by the infundibulum, the tuber …

Insular lobe (Insula)

The Insular lobe (nsula) is located in depth of Sylvian fissure. The cortex of the insula is covered by frontal operculum, parietal operculum and temporal operculum. The insula has five gyri.

Sulcus, Gyrus, Interhemispheric fissure

Gyrus (plural gyri) is a ridge on the cerebral cortex. Sulcus (plural sulci) is a groove that separates gyri. The cerebral hemispheres are separated by a median cleft: the inherhemispheric fissure (great longitudinal fissure). The falx cerebri (cerebral falx) is a fold of dura mater which lies within inherhemispheric fissure Reference: • Harnsberger HR, Osborn …
