Middle frontal gyrus

The middle frontal gyrus is part of the superolateral surface of the frontal lobe, located between the superior frontal sulcus and inferior frontal sulcus, which respectively separate it from the superior frontal gyrus and inferior frontal gyrus. Anteriorly it abuts the frontopolar cortex, and posteriorly it is separated from the precentral gyrus by the precentral sulcus.
