Functional Neuroanatomy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


We present the surface anatomy of the brain describing in detail the typical configuration of the sulci and gyri and their most frequent variations. After describing the borders of the lobes, we give guidance on the methods of localizing functionally important atomic structures such as the pericentral cortex, Heschl’s gyrus, and calcarine sulcus. On the basis of the surface anatomy and the cytoarchitectonic subdivision of the cortex, we describe the function of selected areas related to the motor system and to speech.
