The temporal lobe is one of the lobes of the brain. Its lateral surface is divided into:

  1. Inferior temporal gyrus
  2. Middle temporal gyrus
  3. Superior temporal gyrus

These are divided by

  1. Superior temporal sulcus
  2. Inferior temporal sulcus

In the medial temporal lobe are areas

  1. Entorhinal cortex
  2. Subiculum
  3. Hippocampus

In the occipitotemporal region is

  1. Medial occipitotemporal gyrus (lingual gyrus)
  2. Lateral occipitotemporal gyrus (fusiform gyrus)

The part of the temporal lobe that covers the insula is referred to as the temporal operculum.[1]

The most anterior part of the temporal lobe is referred to as the temporal pole.

MeSH group the auditory cortex and the parahippocampal gyrus under the temporal lobe.
