Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0039485

NCI Thesaurus Code: C12353  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Body Part, Organ, or Organ Component

NCIt Definition: One of the cerebral lobes. It is located inferior to the frontal and parietal lobes and anterior to the occipital lobe.

RADLEX Definition: Temporal lobe is the ventrolateral lobe of five lobes comprising each cerebral hemisphere. It is bounded dorsally by the lateral fissure and posteriorly by an arbitrary border shared with the occipital lobe.

MSH Definition: Lower lateral part of the cerebral hemisphere responsible for auditory, olfactory, and semantic processing. It is located inferior to the lateral fissure and anterior to the OCCIPITAL LOBE.

CDISC Definition: The second largest of the four cerebral lobes, the temporal lobe is approximately twenty two percent of the total neocortical volume. The temporal lobe can be divided into two main sections: first, the neocortex, comprising its lateral and inferolateral surfaces, and its standard cerebral cortex; and, second, the mesial temporal lobe, which is sometimes referred to as the limbic lobe, and includes the hippocampus, the amygdala, and the parahippocampal gyrus. Grossly, the lobe extends superiorly to the Sylvian fissure, and posteriorly to an imaginary line, the lateral parietotemporal line, which separates the temporal lobe from the inferior parietal lobule superiorly and the occipital lobe inferiorly. The middle cranial fossa forms its anterior and inferior boundaries.

CSP Definition: lower lateral lobe of the cerebral hemisphere.

FMA Definition: Temporal lobe is the ventrolateral lobe of five lobes comprising each cerebral hemisphere. It is bounded dorsally by the lateral fissure and posteriorly by an arbitrary border shared with the occipital lobe.
