  • In anatomy, lying between the convolution of the corpus callosum and the marginal convolution of the brain: as, the callosomarginal sulcus or fissure.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The Cingulate Sulcus (sulcus cinguli; callosomarginal fissure) (Fig. 727) is on the medial surface of the hemisphere; it begins below the anterior end of the corpus callosum and runs upward and forward nearly parallel to the rostrum of this body and, curving in front of the genu, is continued backward above the corpus callosum, and finally ascends to the supero-medial border of the hemisphere a short distance behind the upper end of the central sulcus.
