Cingulate gyrus (belt ridge in eng.) is a
gyrusin the medial part of the brain. It partially wraps around the corpus callosumand is limited above by the cingulate sulcus.
The cortical part of the cingulate gyrus is referred to as
The cingulate gyrus receives inputs from the
anterior nucleusof the thalamusand the neocortex, as well as from somatosensoryareas of the cerebral cortex. It projects to the entorhinal cortexvia the cingulum.
It functions as an integral part of the
limbic system, which is involved with emotion formation and processing, learning, and memory. Also, executive control needed to suppress inappropriate unconscious priming is known to involve the anterior cingulate gyrus.
