inferior occipital sulcus
Acronym: iocs
The term inferior occipital sulcus refers to a horizontal groove low on the lateral aspect of the occipital lobe of human cerebral cortex. It separates the middle occipital gyrus above from the inferior occipital gyrus below ( Duvernoy-1992 ). In the macaque it extends from the ventrolateral surface of the occipital lobe to the ventral surface and separates the occipital gyrus from the inferior occipital gyrus. Equivalent structures are not found in the smooth cerebral cortex of the rat and mouse ( NeuroNames ).
