Central Lobes & Frontal Lobes - Inferior View

On the inferior surface of the brain, locate the orbital gyri of the frontal lobe; so named because they are located just above the skull's bony orbits. The function of the orbital gyri is related to intellectual and emotional expression. Also on the inferior aspect of the frontal lobe, locate the olfactory sulcus and the gyrus rectus (the straight gyrus).
