Postcentral sulcus of the human brain.

The postcentral sulcus of the parietal lobe lies parallel to, and behind, the central sulcus in the human brain. (A sulcus is one of the prominent grooves on the surface of the brain.)


The precentral sulcus divides the postcentral gyrus from the remainder of the parietal lobe.
