Longitudinal fissure

The great longitudinal fissure (or longitudinal cerebral fissure, or longitudinal fissure, or interhemispheric fissure) is the deep groove that separates the two hemispheres of the vertebrate brain.

The falx cerebri, a dural brain covering, lies within the medial longitudinal fissure.

The corpus callosum crosses the medial longitudinal fissure.
