Angular gyrus


The inferior parietal lobule is composed primarly of the angular gyrus and supramarginal gyrus

The angular gyrus is a region of the brain in the parietal lobe, that lies near the superior edge of the temporal lobe, and immediately posterior to the supramarginal gyrus

The superior temporal sulcus terminates in the angular gyrus.

It is involved in a number of processes related to language, number processing and spatial cognition, memory retrieval, attention, and theory of mind. It is Brodmann area 39 of the human brain.

Alexia and agraphia are disorders common to the left inferior parietal lobe, including the angular gyrus and supramarginal gyrus.
