The superior sagittal sinus (also known as the superior longitudinal sinus), within the human head, is a large unpaired venous space along the attached margin of falx cerebri, running from front to back along the centre of the head.

It allows blood to drain from the lateral aspects of anterior cerebral hemispheres to the confluence of sinuses.

Cerebrospinal fluid drains through arachnoid granulations into the superior sagittal sinus and is returned to venous circulation.
