Recent investigations indicate a site of cardiac representation within the left insular cortex of the rat. Moreover, the results of lesion studies suggest left-sided insular dominance for sympathetic cardiovascular effects. It is unclear whether similar representation exists within the human insular cortex. Five epileptic patients underwent intraoperative insular stimulation prior to temporal lobectomy for seizure control. On stimulation of the left insular cortex, bradycardia and depressor… Expand
The Effect of Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Over Left and Right Temporal Cortex on the Cardiovascular Response: A Comparative Study
TLDR
The results of the current study suggest that anodal tDCS of the left and right TC does not affect functional cardiovascular response during exercise PEMI test and during tDCS. Expand
The Cardioinhibitory Responses of the Right Posterior Insular Cortex in an Epileptic Patient
TLDR
The right posterior inferior IC is an important cardioinhibitory center and interference with this region alters the cardiac response to handgrip exercise, and fMRI data showed nearly absent activation in the right IC relative to healthy subjects. Expand
Electrophysiological evidence for reciprocal insulo-insular connectivity of baroreceptor-related neurons
TLDR
Recordings of reciprocal interinsular antidromic and orthodromic activation in Sprague-Dawley rats suggest that the two insulae may communicate with each other to integrate and balance cardiovascular function between hemispheres. Expand
Characterization, distribution and lateralization of baroreceptor-related neurons in the rat insular cortex
TLDR
The importance of the right posterior insula in the rat as a site of cardiovascular representation is confirmed; a more extensive distribution of cells responsive to blood pressure changes within the insula than previous studies are identified; and more widespread convergence of visceral afferent information within theinsula is implied. Expand
Asystole induced by electrical stimulation of the left cingulate gyrus.
TLDR
It is suggested that the left cingulate gyrus, as part of the central autonomic network, may mediate bradyarrhythmia through the vagal pathway in a patient with frontal lobe epilepsy who had intracranial electrode placement showing bifrontal seizure-onset. Expand
How the insula speaks to the heart: Cardiac responses to insular stimulation in humans
TLDR
Findings seemed to indicate a posterior predominance of sympathetic control in the insula, whichever the side; whereas the parasympathetic control seemed more anterior. Expand
The Insular Cortex and the Regulation of Cardiac Function.
TLDR
The results of clinical, experimental, and functional radiological studies show a complex interweave of activity with patterns dynamically varying regarding lateralization and antero-posterior distribution of responsive insular regions. Expand
Functional organization of the human anterior insular cortex
TLDR
Insight is provided into the organization of human AIC and a methodological approach that may be further used to refine the emerging functional map of the insular cortex is provided. Expand
Regional Brain Activation Due to Pharmacologically Induced Adrenergic Interoceptive Stimulation in Humans
TLDR
These results demonstrate the involvement of specific brain regions as well as hemispheric laterality of function in visceral perception, and suggest that during emotional reactions involving changes in visceral organ function, activation of some of the brain regions observed could be due specifically to interoceptive processes. Expand
Insular cortex lesions alter baroreceptor sensitivity in the urethane-anesthetized rat
TLDR
Baroreceptor gain was investigated in response to the systemic injection of the pressor agent phenylephrine and the depressor agent sodium nitroprusside in 57 urethane-anesthetized, male Sprague-Dawley rats before and after single lesion placement, and data suggest that the posterior insula (and not surrounding cortex or anterior insula) is primarily involved in cardiovascular control.

Cardiac chronotropic organization of the rat insular cortex
TLDR
This is the first report of the demonstration of a cortical region wherein stimulation affects heart rate and no other parameter, and it is unclear whether the cardiac effects are primary or secondary to these. Expand
Insular cortex stimulation produces lethal cardiac arrhythmias: a mechanism of sudden death?
TLDR
The data suggest that pathophysiological activation of the insular cortex by stroke, epileptic seizure, or under conditions of severe emotional stress could predispose to ECG changes, cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death. Expand
Asymmetry of sympathetic consequences of experimental stroke.
TLDR
Asymmetries of sympathetic regulation at the level of the inferior cervical ganglia have long been recognized, but this conclusion has remained tentative, since the differential effect of lateralized brain lesions on sympathetic activity has not been studied systematically. Expand
Trigeminal neurotomy and blood pressure responses from stimulation of lateral cerebral cortex of Macaca mulatta.
TLDR
The present study is an attempt to ascertain the entire extent of lateral neocortex from which blood pressure responses obtained from stimulation of various areas of the cerebral cortex are obtainable by using the stimulating techniques now available, and to begin to investigate whether or not a common mechanism links these various areas.

TLDR
There appear to be four areas of the cerebral cortex which play a role in the regulation of autonomic activity, the motor areas 4 and 6, the anterior part of the cingulate gyrus (area 24), area 8 of the frontal lobe and the orbital surface ofThe frontal lobe. Expand

TLDR
A collective consideration of afferents and efferents indicates that the insula has connections with principal sensory areas in the olfactory, gustatory, somesthetic, and auditory AI and AII modalities. Expand

Observations of the insula of the rhesus monkey indicate that AChE histochemistry can be used for the architectonic analysis of cortex. Expand
Unilateral cerebral inactivation produces differential left/right heart rate responses
TLDR
The results are consistent with differential left/right cerebral hemispheric effects on autonomic function, and appear related to functional and anatomic asymmetries in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Expand
Roles of psychologic stress and autonomic nervous system changes in provocation of ventricular premature complexes.
TLDR
It is concluded that objective psychologic tests may precipitate ventricular arrhythmia in susceptible patients, and evocation of peripheral autonomic reflexes is an insufficient trigger for enhanced ventricular ectopic activity. Expand
