superior limiting sulcus
Acronym: slms
The term superior limiting sulcus refers to one of three parts of the limiting sulcus in the human ( Ture-1999 ). Identified by dissection, it separates the insula from the frontoparietal operculum. The other parts are the inferior limiting sulcus and the anterior limiting sulcus. In the macaque it is one of just two parts; the other is the inferior limiting sulcus. The limiting sulcus is not present in rodents. Updated 31 May 2024.
