"Gyrus" in context

Gyrus is a term used in anatomy to describe the ridges and furrows found on the surface of the brain. It is believed that these ridges and furrows help increase the brain's surface area and thus increases the amount of information that can be stored on it. It also helps the brain quickly process its stored information. It is important to note that different parts of the brain may have different types of gyri as well as different depths of furrows. Gyrus can be found in both the cerebrum and the cerebellum.
