Last revised by Dr Zander Hendrik Engelbrecht on 01 Mar 2022

The parahippocampal gyrus is a cortical ridge in the medial temporal lobe, located superior to the tentorium. Anteriorly it curves to form the uncus of the temporal lobe and posteriorly it appears continuous with the lingual gyrus

It covers the the hippocampus medially and amygdala anteromedially. Inferolaterally it is bounded by the collateral sulcus
