Sulci

Depression or fissure in the surface of the brain. It surrounds the gyri, creating the characteristic appearance of the brain.

The brain sulci constitute the main microanatomic delimiting landmarks and surgical corridors of modern microneurosurgery. Because of the frequent difficulty in intraoperatively localizing and visually identifying the brain sulci with assurance.
