inferior rostral gyrus
Acronym: IRoG
The term inferior rostral gyrus refers to a convolution on the medial surface of the frontal lobe in the human ( Mai-1997 ). Defined on the basis of dissection and stains for Nissl substance, it is bounded dorsally by the superior rostral gyrus and the cingulate gyrus. Ventrally the rostral sulcus separates it from the straight gyrus. It is not found in the macaque, where the comparable area dorsal to the rostral sulcus is occupied by the anterior cingulate gyrus ( Martin-2000 ). Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
