QS Study

Super lateral surface of cerebrum: It is convex and is related to the cranial vault. It is about 2-5 mm thick and accounts for about 80% of the brain’s totaling mass. Functions include thinking and reasoning, memory, consciousness, attention, perceptual awareness and language.


  • Superomedial: It separates this surface from the medial surface.
  • Inferior lateral: It separates this surface from the inferior surface.
  • Superciliary: It separates this surface from the orbital surface of the frontal lobe.

  1. Frontal lobe: Occupies the area anterior to the central sulcus and superior to the lateral sulcus.
  2. Parietal lobe: Occupies the area posterior to the central sulcus and superior to the lateral sulcus extending posteriorly up to the parieto-occipital sulcus.
  3. Temporal lobe – temporal pole, superior temporal gyrus, superior temporal sulcus, middle temporal gyrus, middle temporal sulcus, inferior temporal sulcus, preoccipital notch
  4. Occipital lobe – superior occipital gyrus, inferior occipital gyrus, occipital pole


  • The central sulcus
  • The lateral sulcus.
