Desikan-Killiany atlas region names

Hi there,
My question is that I have searched for desikan-killiany atlas regions list ( Supplementary Table 1: Desikan-Killiany atlas region list) and I did not find any reference to make me sure that primary somatosensory cortex (S1) in DK atlas is the same postcentral gyrus. I would thanks if you give me a hint or any web address to find ourt more or check this issue.

From: An automated labeling system for subdividing the human cerebral cortex on MRI scans into gyral based regions of interest, Desikan et al., (2006):

A "sulcal" approach (manual tracing from the depth of one sulcus to another, thus incorporating the gyrus within) was used to define most structures".

You can consult the article (link above) for details on how the delimitation between regions was done, and the definition for each of these regions.
