The supramarginal gyrus is located in the inferior parietal lobule, being limited around it by intraparietal sulcus, the inferior postcentral sulcus, the posterior subcentral sulcus and the lateral sulcus.


It processes information to generate spatial orientation and semantic representation. It can thus correlate sounds and letters. It is also involved in the perception of emotions from facial stimuli.
