PurposeThe human insula constitutes the invaginated portion of the cerebral cortex and is less well understood than other cortical areas because of its hidden location. Our purpose was to study the neurosurgical anatomy of the human insula via a combined and comparative study of its gross and imaging anatomy.MethodsWe totally studied the anatomy of 148 normal insulae in anatomic specimens and radiologic images. We evaluated the number of all insular gyri (short and long), we statistically… CONTINUE READING
