The anterior temporal artery is usually a branch of the M1 segment of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) that curves out of the Sylvian fissure and runs over the temporal lobe to supply the anterior third of the superior, middle and inferior temporal gyri.
The temporopolar artery, which supplies the temporal pole, usually arises separately from the M1 segment of MCA, however, it may arise as a branch from the anterior temporal artery 1.
