|Brain: Intraparietal sulcus|
|Lateral surface of left cerebral hemisphere, viewed from the side. (Intraparietal sulcus visible at upper right, running horizontally.)|
|Principal fissures and lobes of the cerebrum viewed laterally. (Fissures not labeled, but parietal lobe is colored yellow.)|
|Gray's||subject #189 822|
|Part of||Parietal lobe|
The intraparietal sulcus (IPS) is located on the lateral surface of the parietal lobe, and consists of an oblique and a horizontal portion. The IPS contains a series of functionally distinct subregions that have been intensively investigated using both single cell neurophysiology in primates and human functional neuroimaging. Its principle functions are related to perceptual-motor coordination (for directing eye movements and reaching) and visual attention.
