The chapter describes the detailed topography of the orbitofrontal sulci and gyri in humans and nonhuman primates. Orbitofrontal gyri include the medial, lateral, anterior and posterior orbital gyri, and the gyrus rectus. The primary orbital sulci include the olfactory suclus, medial, lateral, and transverse transverse orbital sulci, although intermediate orbital, posterior orbital and fragmentosi sulci also arise in some subjects. Variations in sulcal and gyral patterns are described, along with the typical location of the gyri and sulci in stereotactic space. Finally, the location of cytoarchitectural regions is discussed in relationship to the topography of the orbitofrontal cortex.
