Lateral Occipital Sulcus

In the occipital lobe, the lateral occipital sulcus extends from behind forward, and divides the lateral surface of the occipital lobe into a superior and an inferior gyrus, which are continuous in front with the parietal and temporal lobes.

Famous quotes containing the word occipital:

    in the absence of feet, “a method of conclusions”;
    “a knowledge of principles,”
    in the curious phenomenon of your occipital horn.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
