superior limb of the arcuate sulcus
Acronym: slas
The term superior limb of the arcuate sulcus refers to the upper, horizontal branch of the arcuate sulcus in the frontal lobe of the macaque. Defined by dissection, it separates the superior frontal gyrus from the middle frontal gyrus ( Martin-2000 ). It may be homologous to the superior frontal sulcus and superior precentral sulcus of the adult human. (See arcuate sulcus for details.) Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
