Superior view of the brain (Latin)

Superior view of the brain (Latin)

Looking at the brain from the lateral (first image) and superior view (second image), the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital lobes can be identified. There are several important gyri and sulci that are visible from these two perspectives. The sulcus centralis separates the lobus frontalis from the lobus parietalis (and the gyrus precentralis from the gyrus postcentralis). At the anterior/rostral aspect the gyri frontales (superior, medius and inferior) can be seen. The lobus temporalis similarly bears lobi temporales superior, media and inferior. The lobus parietalis has two two lobules, superior and inferior, with the gyrus angularis and the gyrus supramarginalis present in the latter. Finally, at the posterior/caudal aspect of the brain, the lateral surface of the lobus occipitalis can be observed. It is separated from the lobus parietalis by the sulcus parietooccipitalis and the incisura preoccipitalis, seen from the superior perspective.
