Subparietal sulcus

Dr Craig Hacking and Dr Maxime St-Amant et al.

The subparietal sulcus is a sulcus on the medial surface of the parietal lobe that separates the precuneus from the posterior aspect of the cingulate gyrus. It is considered a posterior continuation of the cingulate sulcus even if these sulci are most commonly discontinuous.
