Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The orbital part of inferior frontal gyrus also known as the pars orbitalis is the orbital part of the inferior frontal gyrus.

In the human, this region is bordered by the triangular part of the inferior frontal gyrus and, surrounding the anterior horizontal limb of the lateral sulcus, a portion of the opercular part of the inferior frontal gyrus. Bounded caudally by the anterior ascending limb of the lateral sulcus, it borders on the insula in the depth of the lateral sulcus. Cytoarchitectonically it is bounded caudally by the opercular Brodmann area 44, rostrodorsally by Brodmann area 46 and ventrally by Brodmann area 47 ( Korbinian Brodmann-1909 ).[1]
