fronto-orbital gyrus
Acronym: FOG
The term fronto-orbital gyrus refers to a convolution of the frontal lobe identified by dissection in the macaque. The most lateral of the orbital gyri, it is separated from the lateral orbital gyrus by the lateral orbital sulcus. It wraps around the lateral margin of the lobe, where it is separated from the inferior frontal gyrus by an arbitrary boundary. It extends from the frontal pole to the insula on the ventral surface and to the inferior ramus of the arcuate sulcus on the lateral surface ( Martin-2000 ). It may be equivalent to the frontomarginal gyrus of the human ( NeuroNames ).
     Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse.
