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).
