supracallosal gyrus
Acronym: SPCG
The term supracallosal gyrus refers to a composite structure defined by dissection, which, in the human, extends along the dorsal surface of the corpus callosum from the dentate gyrus and fasciola cinerea caudally to the paraterminal gyrus rostrally. It consists of three longitudinal structures: the medial longitudinal stria, the indusium griseum and the lateral longitudinal stria ( Riley-1943 ). In the macaque ( Martin-2000 ) it is similarly located. It is not present in the smooth cortex of the rat and mouse. In those species the indusium griseum is embedded in cingulate cortex where it is defined by microscopy ( Swanson-2004; Hof-2000 ). Updated 20 May 2024..
