A shared neural network for emotional expression and perception: an anatomical study in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The results show that the insular field underlying emotional expression is part of a network involving specific frontal, cingulate, temporal, and parietal areas, as well as the amygdala, the basal ganglia, and thalamus, indicating that this sector of the insula is a site of integration of motor, emotional, sensory and social information.
Functional organization of the insula and inner perisylvian regions
TLDR
The results showed that the insular cortex is functionally formed by two main subdivisions: a sensorimotor field occupying the caudal–dorsal portion of the insula and appearing as an extension of the parietal lobe; and a mosaic of orofacial motor programs located in the anterior and centroventral insula sector.
Motor and emotional behaviours elicited by electrical stimulation of the human cingulate cortex
TLDR
Clear functional differences are found between the pregenual part of the cingulate cortex, hosting the majority of emotional, interoceptive and autonomic responses, and the anterior midcingulate sector, controlling themajority of all complex motor behaviours.
The Roles of Subdivisions of Human Insula in Emotion Perception and Auditory Processing
TLDR
The posterior and the anterior subdivisions of the human insula showed distinct response properties to auditory emotional stimuli and a transformation from sensory to affective representations in auditory modality along the posterior-to-anterior axis in the humaninsula is suggested.
Specific disgust processing in the left insula: New evidence from direct electrical stimulation
Faces in the mirror, from the neuroscience of mimicry to the emergence of mentalizing.
TLDR
Patterns of activations of neural populations related to observation and execution of specific mouth actions and emotional facial expressions in some species of monkeys and in humans are described, suggesting that the evolution of higher forms of empathy, such as mentalizing, is also linked to the coupling between the perceptual and motor system related to face processing.
Neural correlates of perceived emotions in human insula and amygdala
The emotional status of a speaker is an important non-linguistic cue carried by human voice and can be perceived by a listener in vocal communication. Understanding the neural circuits involved in
Felt and Seen Pain Evoke the Same Local Patterns of Cortical Activity in Insular and Cingulate Cortex
TLDR
It is found that only in the anterior insula (bilaterally) the distribution of cortical activity evoked by seeing another person's hand in pain was spatially similar to that of pain felt on one's own hand, providing the stronger evidence thus far of a unique distributed cortical ensemble coding for aversive events regardless of the subject who is affected.

The role of anterior insular cortex in social emotions
TLDR
A model is presented suggesting that AI is not only involved in representing current states, but also in predicting emotional states relevant to the self and others, and implies that AI plays a dominant role in decision making in complex and uncertain environments.
Representation of pain and somatic sensation in the human insula: a study of responses to direct electrical cortical stimulation.
TLDR
It is found that painful and non-painful somaesthetic representations in the human insula overlap, and lateralization in the right hemisphere of sites where painful sensations were evoked is coherent with the hypothesis of a preponderant role of this hemisphere in species survival.

TLDR
The present paper reviews and previews work from the laboratory investigating the relationship between hypothalamic reward and feeding, and concludes that feeding and self- Stimulation are actually related, then experimental manipulations that affect feeding should also affect self-stimulation.
Empathy for Pain Involves the Affective but not Sensory Components of Pain
TLDR
Only that part of the pain network associated with its affective qualities, but not its sensory qualities, mediates empathy, suggesting that the neural substrate for empathic experience does not involve the entire "pain matrix".

Neural systems supporting interoceptive awareness
TLDR
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.

TLDR
These findings suggest that the motor cortex participates directly in organizing and controlling the animal's behavioral repertoire, changing continuously on the basis of feedback in a manner that could support the control of higher-order movement parameters.
