The division of the cerebrum into five lobes is widely accepted in the scientific community.

The subdivision of the cerebral hemispheres into lobes was determined from the skull bones with which they are related 1)

However, in 1809, in its original description by Johann Christian Reil, the insula was recognized as a distinct lobe 2)

Frontal lobe

Parietal lobe

Temporal lobe

Occipital lobe

An article recounts the history with an emphasis on the contributions of Thomas Willis (1664), Felix Vicq d'Azyr (1796), Johann-Christian Reil (1796), François Chaussier (1807), and Louis Pierre Gratiolet and François Leuret (1857) into one of the most widely accepted concepts in neuroanatomy 3).
