lunate sulcus of the macaque
Acronym: lus
The term lunate sulcus of the macaque refers to a prominent groove on the lateral aspect of the cerebral cortex of the macaque. Identified by dissection, it originates from the parieto-occipital sulcus on the dorsal margin of the the hemisphere and separates the occipital lobe from the angular gyrus of the parietal lobe ( Martin-2000 ). It is not topologically equivalent to the lunate sulcus of the human, which is a minor sulcus near the occipital pole of the human cerebral cortex ( Duvernoy-1992 ). No equivalent is seen in the human or in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat or mouse ( NeuroNames ).
