in·fe·ri·or tem·po·ral gy·rus

a sagittal convolution on the inferolateral border of the temporal lobe of the cerebrum, separated from the middle temporal gyrus by the inferior temporal sulcus. On the inferior surface of the temporal lobe it is separated from the medial occipitotemporal gyrus by the occipitotemporal sulcus. It includes the lateral occipitotemporal gyrus.

Tang and colleagues [97] studied the default mode network (DMN) in patients with early-onset schizophrenia (12 to 19 years old); they found increased functional connection between the ventromedial prefrontal lobe and the right inferior temporal gyrus, left angular gyrus, and dorsomedial prefrontal lobe, but decreased functional connection between the right angular gyrus and the cerebellar tonsil, left superior frontal gyrus and right inferior semilunar lobule.
Kong and colleagues [99] found increased functional connection in the bilateral inferior temporal gyrus of the TNN among individuals with schizophrenia and their healthy siblings; they also found increased functional connection between the left DLPFC and the right inferior temporal gyrus of the TPN among individuals with schizophrenia.
We found that compared to matched controls, depressed adolescents in the resting state had lower ALFF in the bilateral cuneate lobe, left occipital lobe, and left medial frontal lobe, and higher ALFF in the posterior cingulate, left inferior temporal gyrus, right superior temporal gyrus, right insula, right parietal lobe, and the right gyri fusiformis.
The inferior temporal gyrus is located below the middle temporal gyrus; it participates in vision and in various cognitive processes.
