Cingulate Gyrus Within Cingulate Cortex

Sagittal MRI slice with highlighting indicating location of the cingulate cortex.
Coronal section of brain. Cingulate cortex is shown in yellow.
The cingulate cortex, a part of the limbic cortex, is a part of the cerebrum arranged in the average part of the cerebral cortex in the brain. The cingulate cortex incorporates the whole cingulate gyrus, which lies instantly over the corpus callosum, and the continuation of this in the cingulate sulcus. The cingulate cortex is normally considered part of the limbic projection.

It gets contributions from the thalamus and the neocortex, and undertakings to the entorhinal cortex by means of the cingulum. It is a necessary part of the limbic framework, which is included with feeling arrangement and processing, learning, and memory. The mix of these three capacities makes the cingulate gyrus profoundly powerful in connecting behavioral results to inspiration (e.g. a specific activity prompted a positive passionate reaction, which brings about learning). This part makes the cingulate cortex exceedingly vital in most disorders, for example, depression and schizophrenia. It additionally assumes a part in official capacity and respiratory control.
