pyriform lobe
The term pyriform lobe denotes a composite substructure of the endbrain that includes the lateral olfactory stria, the volumetric structures whose combined surfaces constitute the uncus and, depending on the author, other parts of the anterior portion of the parahippocampal gyrus ( Carpenter-1983 ). A thorough discussion of differences in description of the pyriform lobe is presented in Anthoney-1994.
