1 Parietal lobe. Lobus parietalis. It is bounded anteriorly by the central sulcus, posteriorly by the parieto-occipital sulcus. A

2 Postcentral sulcus. Sulcus postcentralis. Posterior boundary of the postcentral gyrus. A

3 Postcentral gyrus. Gyrus postcentralis. Predominantly sensory area of the parietal lobe that lies between the central and postcentral sulci. A

4 Superior parietal lobule. Lobulus parietalis superior. Upper half of parietal lobe situated behind the postcentral gyrus and above the intra-parietal sulcus. A

5 Intraparietal sulcus. Sulcus intraparietalis. Inconstant sagittal furrow between the superior and inferior parietal lobulus. A

6 Inferior parietal lobue. Lobulus parietalis inferior. Lower half of parietal lobe situated behind the postcentral gyrus and below the intra-parietal sulcus. A

7 Frontoparietal operculum. Operculum frontoparietal. Part of the cerebral segment located above the posterior ramus of the lateral sulcus and covering the insula. It extends toward the occiput and approaches the site where the posterior ramus turns upward. A

8 Supramarginal gyrus. Gyrus supramarginalis. Convolutioncurvingaroundtheposteriorendof the posterior ramus of the lateral sulcus. A

9 Angular gyrus. Gyrus angularis. Convolution curving around the posterior end of the superior temporal sulcus. A

10 Occipital lobe. Lobus occipitalis. It is incompletely bounded by the parietal and parieto-occipital sulci and the pre-occipital in-cisure. A

11 Occipital pole. Polus occipitalis. Posterior end of occipital lobe. A

12 Transverse occipital sulcus. Sulcus occipitalis transversus. Continuation of the intraparietalis sulcus on the occipital lobe. A

13 Lunate sulcus. Sulcus lunatus. Sometimes conspicuous semilunar furrow that forms the anterior boundary of the visual cortex. It lies on the superolateral surface of the cerebrum near the occipital pole of the hemisphere at the posterior end of the calcarine fissure. A

14 Preoccipital incisure. Incisura preoccipitalis. Notch near the inferolateral edge of the cerebral hemisphere that marks the boundary between the occipital and temporal lobes. On the bony skull it is marked by the site where the petrous ridge enters the lateral wall of the skull. A

15 Temporal lobe. Lobus temporalis. It is bounded superiorly by the posterior ramus of the lateral sulcus. A

16 Temporal pole. Polus temporalis. Anterior end of temporal lobe. A
