Relating to or having a calcar.
Having the shape of a spur.
The area of cortex characterized by the stripe of Gennari occupies in man, as mentioned, the calcarine and cuneate region.
Such a loss agrees with a lesion involving the upper part of the cuneate lobe above the calcarine fissure.
The lesion is one of the left occipital cortex in the cuneate lobe and the neighbourhood of the calcarine fissure.
The calcarine fissure passed completely across the gyrus frontitatus on both sides in two cases, on one side in four cases.
