The cingulate gyrus is divided into anterior (frontal lobe) and posterior (parietal lobe) portions in the area of the central sulcus. The rostral part surrounds the genu of the corpus callosum and ends in the subcallosal cortex; it continues posteriorly around the splenium of the corpus callosum to become the parahippocampal gyrus at the level of the cingulate isthmus. The adjacent areas of the hemisphere comprise the mesial and hemispheric surface of F1 with the SMA, the paracentral lobule, and the precuneus in the parietal lobe von Lehe and Schramm summarized the areas adjacent to the cingulate gyrus at the interhemispheric surface as “supracingular”). 1).
