rostral sulcus
Acronym: ros
The term rostral sulcus refers to a superficial feature of the frontal lobe identified by dissection. In the human it is a horizontal groove on the lower medial surface that separates the straight gyrus below from the inferior rostral gyrus above ( Mai-1997 ); in brains that have parallel sulci dorsal to the straight gyrus, it is called the inferior rostral sulcus ( Vogt-1995 ). In the macaque, which does not have an inferior rostral gyrus or a superior rostral gyrus, it separates the straight gyrus from the anterior cingulate gyrus ( Martin-2000 ). Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
