What's the difference between the cingulate cortex and the cingulate gyrus?

I swear there's no way to find that info in google. Tried and tried. Anyone familiar with the anatomy of the brain?

2. ok

the cerebral cortex is the outside layer of the brain. the wrinkly looking part you see looking at a brain. a gyrus is a ridge on the cortex. the cingulate cortex includes the cingulate gyrus and other areas.

3. The gyrus is the demarcation line where the cortex is located.

A gyrus is a fold in the brain, what some call wrinkles.

One of the convolutions on the medial surface of the cerebral hemisphere. It surrounds the rostral part of the brain and interhemispheric commissure and forms part of the limbic system.

A cortex is a group of cells creating a layer, like the cingulate cortex, a part of the limbic lobe.





Both, gyrus and cortex, are indicators of location and form.

4. There are also sulci.

A sulcus is another demarcation line. It occurs as a shallow "wrinkle" or depression and separates convolutions.

I hope this has been helpful.

5. An extra vowel?

Past that, I've got nothing.
