inferior calcarine sulcus
Acronym: iccs
The term inferior calcarine sulcus refers to one of two extensions of the calcarine sulcus, where it splits into two short vertically oriented branches near the occipital pole. This is the ventrally curved inferior branch; the other is a symmetrical, dorsally curved superior calcarine sulcus. The branches are found in the macaque ( Martin-2000; Paxinos-2009a ) and, though often not named as separate structures, are illustrated in human brain atlases ( Ono-1990; Duvernoy-1992; Mai-1997 ). No comparable structures are found in the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
