lateral occipital sulcus
Acronym: locs

It separates the middle occipital gyrus into superior and inferior parts. In some cases it intersects the lunate sulcus of the human caudally ( Duvernoy-1992 ). Some authors regard the lunate sulcus to be part of the the lateral occipital sulcus ( Van Essen Lab-2002 ).
     Equivalent structures are not found in the macaque or in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat and mouse ( NeuroNames ).
