The SII area and the posterior insular region are both activated by thermal stimuli in functional imaging studies. However, controversy remains as to a possible differential encoding of thermal intensity by each of these 2 contiguous areas. Using CO(2) laser stimulations, we analyzed the modifications induced by increasing thermal energy on evoked potentials recorded with electrodes implanted within SII and posterior insula in patients referred for presurgical evaluation of epilepsy. Although… CONTINUE READING
