Acronym: FPGs
The term refers to the dorsal-most of three horizontal gyri located at the frontal pole of the human frontal lobe. Defined by gross dissection, the three constitute the transverse frontopolar gyri. The other two are the middle frontopolar gyrus and the inferior frontopolar gyrus ( Mai-1997 ). Equivalent structures are not found in the macaque or in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
