superior calcarine sulcus
Acronym: sccs
The term superior calcarine sulcus refers to one of two extensions of the calcarine sulcus where it splits into two short vertically oriented branches near the occipital pole. This is the dorsally curved superior branch; the other is a symmetrical, ventrally curved inferior calcarine sulcus. They are found in the macaque ( Martin-2000; Paxinos-2009a ) and, though not named as separate sulci, illustrated in human brain atlases ( Ono-1990; Duvernoy-1992; Mai-1997 ). No comparable structures are found in the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
