In right anterior insular/opercular cortex, neural activity predicted subjects' accuracy in the heartbeat detection task and local gray matter volume correlated with both interoceptive accuracy and subjective ratings of visceral awareness.

It is hypothesized that the neural substrate for these processes during motivational and affective behavior lies within the interactions of anterior cingulate, insula, and orbitofrontal cortices.
Human cingulate cortex and autonomic control: converging neuroimaging and clinical evidence.
Converging neuroimaging and clinical findings suggest that ACC function mediates context-driven modulation of bodily arousal states during effortful cognitive and motor behaviour.

It is demonstrated that medial orbitofrontal cortex modulates the gain of adaptive emotions in a manner that may provide a substrate for the influence of high-level emotions on decision making.
Beauty in a smile: the role of medial orbitofrontal cortex in facial attractiveness
An Interoceptive Predictive Coding Model of Conscious Presence
This model integrates a broad range of previously disparate evidence, makes predictions for conjoint manipulations of agency and presence, offers a new view of emotion as interoceptive inference, and represents a step toward a mechanistic account of a fundamental phenomenological property of consciousness.
The functional neuroanatomy of social behaviour: changes in cerebral blood flow when people with autistic disorder process facial expressions.
High-functioning people with autistic disorder have biological differences from controls when consciously and unconsciously processing facial emotions, and these differences are most likely to be neurodevelopmental in origin.
