subparietal sulcus
Acronym: sbps
The term subparietal sulcus refers to a superficial feature of the medial surface of the cerebral hemisphere identified by dissection. In the human it is a complex branching sulcus located at the junction of the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, and the limbic lobe ( Ono-1990 ) In the macaque it is a composite sulcus consisting of two parts, only one of which bears the name subparietal sulcus. That is the upper component, which defines partially the boundary between the posterior cingulate gyrus of the limbic lobe and the precuneus of the parietal lobe. The component below is the medial parieto-occipital sulcus, which is located at the junction of the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, and the limbic lobe ( Martin-2000 ).
     Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
