Neuroanatomy: medial cortex (diagrams)

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Lobes of the brain

Modality: Diagram

Images of the lobes of the brain as seen from their interhemispheric surface and their lobar and sulcal relationships. Note, that due to the slope of the middle cranial fossa and tentorium the inferior surface of the temporal lobes and occipital lobes are also seen. 

Note: multiple versions of each image are provided as a stack. 

Gyri and lobules

Modality: Diagram

Images of the gyri and lobules of the brain as seen from their interhemispheric surface and their local gyral and sulcal relationships. Note, that due to the slope of the middle cranial fossa and tentorium the inferior surface of the temporal lobes and occipital lobes are also seen. 

Note: multiple versions of each image are provided as a stack. 

Case Discussion

These illustrations are based on the diagrams from "Sobotta's Textbook and Atlas of Human Anatomy 1908", the copyright of which has lapsed. The source files were obtained from wikimedia commons, and are listed below. 

The images have been edited to remove labels, change contrast and slightly tweak some details. In some instances more than one image has been combined (for example the cut-away views of the insular cortex).
