The glabella, in humans, is the space between the eyebrows and above the nose. It is slightly depressed, and joins the two superciliary ridges.
The term is derived from the Latin glabellus, meaning smooth.
In medical science
The glabella can be used to measure skin turgor in patients suspected of being dehydrated.
