accessory insular gyrus
Acronym: AIG
The term accessory insular gyrus refers to a small convolution of the insula identified by dissection in 82% of human hemispheres. One of five gyri of the anterior insula, it is bounded rostrally by the anterior limiting sulcus; a branch of the same sulcus separates it dorsally from the anterior short gyrus. It is continuous ventrally with the transverse insular gyrus ( Ture-1999 ). It is not found in macaques or rodents ( NeuroNames ).
