Leuret and his pupil Gratiolet1 first attempted to classify brain fissures before Meynert2 expanded on this finding and gave a detailed account of the regional variations existing in the cortical mantle and their structural and functional relationships. A large body of literature from the second part of the 19th and the early 20th centuries reported on sulcal patterns in the human brain. Encephalometry, pioneered by Ariens Kappers in 1847,3 was one of the most extensively used methods to study the brain.

THE LATERAL SULCUS AND THE ᭤ BRAIN MORPHOLOGY AND SYLVIAN OPERCULA FISSURAL PATTERNS The lateral or sylvian fissure is the major landmark on the lateral surface of the brain. It develops in the 14th week of gestation and is the most important and constant of the cerebral sulci. It may be divided into three segments. The first, or hidden stem segment, extends from the lateral border of the anterior perforated substance and courses over the limen insula in a posteriorly concave path before ending at the falciform sulcus, separating the lateral orbital gyrus from the temporal pole.
