posterior long gyrus
Acronym: PLG
The term posterior long gyrus refers to one of two long insular gyri identified by dissection in the human. Its posteroinferior boundary is the inferior limiting sulcus ( Ture-1999 ). It is separated, sometimes only partially, from the anterior long gyrus by the postcentral insular sulcus ( Crosby-1962; Duvernoy-1992 ). It is found only in humans, not in macaques ( Mufson-1997 ) or rodents ( NeuroNames ).
