Purpose:  Different lines of evidence suggest that the insular cortex has many important functional roles. Direct electrical stimulation (ES) of the human insular cortex during surgical procedures for epilepsy, functional imaging techniques, and lesion studies also occasionally induces clinical responses. 
Somatosensory Thalamic Activity Modulation by Posterior Insular Stimulation: Cues to Clinical Application Based on Comparison of Frequencies in a Cat Model
The posterior insula (PI) has been proposed as a potential neurostimulation target for neuropathic pain relief as it represents a key‐structure in pain processing. However, currently available dataExpand
Functional connectivity of insular efferences
TLDR
The aim of this study was to explore the functional connectivity between the insula and other cortical regions, in human, using cortico‐cortical evoked potentials (CCEPs) to explore Cortico-Cortical Evoked Potential Associations. Expand
Features of somatosensory manifestations induced by intracranial electrical stimulations of the human insula
TLDR
The data support a prominent somatosensory role of the human insular cortex and provide a precise characterization of the different types of sensory manifestations induced by intracranial electrical stimulation of thehuman insula. Expand
Electrical stimulation of the insulo-opercular region: visual phenomena and altered body-ownership symptoms
TLDR
Using direct intracerebral electrical stimulation in epileptic patients to evoke symptoms to help identify the functional neuroanatomy of the insular lobe and opercula and finding the posterior insula and parietal operculum could play important roles in body-ownership symptoms is found. Expand
Functional mapping of the human insula: Data from electrical stimulations.
TLDR
A functional mapping of the insular cortex obtained by electrical stimulation is provided, based on previous work and a review of literature, which shows the most frequent responses to insula stimulation were somatosensory sensations followed by visceral responses. Expand
Electrical Stimulations of the Human Insula: Their Contribution to the Ictal Semiology of Insular Seizures
TLDR
Symptoms evoked by insular stimulations are multiple, and the occurrence in given seizure of a somatosensory symptom such as pain or of a laryngeal spasm associated with vestibular, auditory, aphasic, or olfacto-gustatory symptoms points to a discharge development in the insular cortex, which is the only cortical region where stimulations demonstrate such a multimodal representation. Expand
Functional characteristics of the human primary somatosensory cortex: An electrostimulation study
TLDR
The analysis of clinical manifestations induced by extra-operative cortical electrical stimulation in 33 patients with medically intractable epilepsy who underwent stereo-electroencephalography monitoring for presurgical assessment revealed the functional characteristics of the entire S1 and proved the multiplicity of functions of S1. Expand
Bilateral cortical representation of orgasmic ecstasy localized by depth electrodes
TLDR
This work presents the first case of isolated bihemispheric reproduction of OE by stimulation via depth electrode in a patient implanted for epilepsy. Expand
Structure and Function of the Human Insula.
TLDR
A concise summary of known structural and functional features of the human insular cortex with a focus on lesion case studies and recent neuroimaging evidence for considerable functional heterogeneity of this brain region is provided. Expand
Electrical Stimulation Mapping of Brain Function: A Comparison of Subdural Electrodes and Stereo-EEG
TLDR
Emerging evidence shows that ESM for defining functional neuroanatomy is feasible with stereo-EEG, but probably requires a different approach for interpretation and clinical decision making compared to ESM with subdural electrodes. Expand

TLDR
The insular cortex was investigated on electroclinical arguments suggesting the possibility of a perisylvian spread or a rapid multilobar diffusion of the discharges during video EEG. Expand

Purpose:  Different lines of evidence have suggested an involvement of the insular cortex in speech production. These have included results from lesion studies, functional imaging techniques, andExpand
Middle short gyrus of the insula implicated in pain processing
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that middle short gyrus is involved in the processing of pain‐producing stimuli. Expand
Cardiovascular effects of human insular cortex stimulation
TLDR
This work believes this to be the first demonstration of cardiovascular changes elicitable during insular stimulation in humans, and of lateralization of such responses for a cortical site, and may be of relevance in predicting the autonomie effects of stroke in humans and in the explanation of sudden unexpected epileptic death. Expand
Apraxia of speech associated with an infarct in the precentral gyrus of the insula
TLDR
It is proposed that the precentral gyrus in the left insula is responsible for co-ordination of speech and a paitent with this disturbance showed an acute infarct limited to this region. Expand

TLDR
The extraoperative electrical stimulation studies of 15 patients with intractable epilepsy who were evaluated with chronically implanted interhemispheric subdural electrodes showed SMA-type positive motor responses were elicited not only from the mesial portion of the superior frontal gyrus but also from its dorsal convexity, and from the paracentral lobule, cingulate gyrus, and precunes.

Intracerebral low frequency electrical stimulation: a new tool for the definition of the "epileptogenic area"?
TLDR
Low Frequency (1 Hz) Electrical Stimulation (LFES) has been systematically utilized, during stereo-EEG investigations, in 24 consecutive young adult patients considered for surgical treatment of severe drug-resistant partial epilepsy, to suggest that LFES is of great help for defining the "epileptogenic area".

[The insula in partial epilepsy].
TLDR
It could be concluded that the insular cortex is involved in somatic, vegetative and visceral functions to which spontaneous ictal insular symptoms are related and should lead to reconsider the indication of temporal lobectomy and explore directly the ictAL activity of both mesio-temporal and insular cortices before making any decision regarding epilepsy surgery.

Role of Operculoinsular Cortices in Human Pain Processing: Converging Evidence from PET, fMRI, Dipole Modeling, and Intracerebral Recordings of Evoked Potentials
TLDR
This multimodal study provides cross-validated spatial and temporal information on the pain-related processes occurring in the operculoinsular region, which thus appears as a major site for the early cortical pain encoding in the human brain. Expand
