inferiork, exterior and posterior occipital winding (or convolution)

The frontal and tempora! windings are generally the most atrophied, while the central and occipital windings have been affected to a smaller degree

disagree  SJLD: windings? is this a joke? Well you're in great company with the Dutch author WJC VERHAART in 1929. And yes I do want to criticize - "windings" is totally and completely wrong. And the gyrus occipitalis is not the same as the gyrus occipitotemporalis

Reference information:
Here Wikipedia describes brain anatomy quite nicely :-)

The key term to this answer is "fusiform". As I could find out in both EN and DE, Gyrus fusiformis or: fusiform gyrus (EN) is used primarily.

see: http://pa.slu.edu/uploads/Intrinsic_Brain/Yasargil_Ture10.pd...
(find -> fusiform)

In parenthesis, the authors mention: "lateral temporo-occipital gyrus" - this should be the explicit description of the anatomical site.

PS. Looking for the German original text: If this is really from the website toxcenter.de, then I would question the correctness of anatomical/medical information. ;-)

Asker: Den Text, den ich zu übersetzen habe, entspricht dem vom toxcenter, es handelt sich bei meinem Text aber um einen Auszug aus einem Laborbefund.
