Previous studies have shown insular activations involving sensory, motor, and affective processing. However, the functional roles of subdivisions within the human insula are still not well understood. In the present study, we used intracranial electroencephalography and electrical cortical stimulation to investigate the causal roles of subdivisions of the insula in auditory emotion perception in epilepsy patients implanted with depth electrodes in this brain region. The posterior and the… 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
Revealing the functions of supra-temporal and insular auditory responsive areas in humans
TLDR
These findings suggest that even the InsP has similar basic auditory response properties to the primary or non-primary cortex, it may not directly participate in the formation of auditory perception. Expand
Auditory deviance detection in the human insula: An intracranial EEG study
The human insula is known to be involved in auditory processing, but knowledge about its precise functional role and the underlying electrophysiology is limited. To assess its role in automaticExpand
Auditory deviance detection in the human insula: An intracranial EEG study
TLDR
High frequency EEG activity from 90 intracranial insular electrodes across 16 patients who were candidates for resective epilepsy surgery while they passively listened to a stream of standard and deviant tones indicates that the human insula is engaged during auditory deviance detection. Expand
Role of the insula in top–down processing: an intracranial EEG study using a visual oddball detection paradigm
TLDR
Results suggest that visual targets elicit a P300 in the aI which corresponds in latency to the P3b component, suggesting that this region is involved in top–down processing of task-relevant information. Expand
Towards a neural model of infant cry perception
Previous work suggests that infant cry perception is supported by an evolutionary old neural network consisting of the auditory system, the thalamocingulate circuit, the frontoinsular system, theExpand
Cortical Responses to Vowel Sequences in Awake and Anesthetized States: A Human Intracranial Electrophysiology Study.
TLDR
Intracranial electroencephalography is used to examine cortical responses to vowel sequences during induction of general anesthesia with propofol to identify putative biomarkers of LOC and serve as a foundation for future investigations of altered sensory processing. Expand
Expanding Simulation Models of Emotional Understanding: The Case for Different Modalities, Body-State Simulation Prominence, and Developmental Trajectories
TLDR
This review article argues that simulation accounts of emotion recognition would benefit from three key extensions, including fuller consideration be given to simulation of bodily and vocal expressions, given that the body and voice are also important expressive channels for providing cues to another’s emotional state. Expand
Human Responses to Visually Evoked Threat
TLDR
An immersive virtual reality platform to simultaneously measure behavior, physiological state, and neural activity from the human brain using chronically implanted electrodes reveals a key role of eye movements and suggests that distinct insula and OFC activation dynamics may be important for detecting and adjusting human stress in response to visually perceived threats. Expand
Towards a neural model of infant cry perception
TLDR
An updated neural model of infant cry perception is presented, offering a neural explanation for previously observed enhanced processing of infant cries in these sub‐groups and recruiting a cortico‐limbic multi‐sensory integration network. Expand

The insula (Island of Reil) and its role in auditory processing Literature review
TLDR
Functional imaging studies demonstrate that the insulae participate in several key auditory processes, such as allocating auditory attention and tuning in to novel auditory stimuli, temporal processing, phonological processing and visual-auditory integration. Expand
Emotional and Social Behaviors Elicited by Electrical Stimulation of the Insula in the Macaque Monkey
TLDR
The results showed that two emotional behaviors, a basic one (disgust) and a social one (affiliative state), were easily elicited by electrical stimulation of specific parts of the insula and exactly which parts of this structure are responsible for these behaviors. Expand
Supramodal Representations of Perceived Emotions in the Human Brain
TLDR
It is suggested that MPFC and STS represent perceived emotions at an abstract, modality-independent level, and thus play a key role in the understanding and categorization of others' emotional mental states. Expand
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. Expand
Anterior insular cortex activity to emotional salience of voices in a passive oddball paradigm
TLDR
The results revealed that disgusted relative to happy syllables elicited stronger MMNm-related cortical activities in the right AIC and precentral gyrus along with the left posterior insular cortex, supramarginal cortex, transverse temporal cortex, and upper bank of superior temporal cortex. Expand
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. Expand
Somatotopic organisation of the human insula to painful heat studied with high resolution functional imaging
TLDR
Examination of mixed effects group activation maps suggested a pain-related somatotopy in the contralateral posterior insula and putamen, and construction of frequency maps revealed that face activation within the posterior Insula was anterior to both hand and foot, whilst foot activation was located medially in the circular sulcus. Expand
Functional connectivity of the insula in the resting brain
TLDR
The authors' findings document two major complementary networks involving the ventral-anterior and dorsal-posterior insula: one network links the anterior insula to the middle and inferior temporal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex, and is primarily related to limbic regions which play a role in emotional aspects, and support the use of resting state functional analysis to investigate connectivity in the living human brain.

Adaptation to Vocal Expressions Reveals Multistep Perception of Auditory Emotion
TLDR
It is found that bilateral voice-sensitive auditory regions as well as right amygdala coded the physical difference between consecutive stimuli and activity in bilateral anterior insulae, medial superior frontal cortex, precuneus, and subcortical regions such as bilateral hippocampi depended predominantly on the perceptual difference between morphs. Expand
Separating subjective emotion from the perception of emotion-inducing stimuli: An fMRI study
TLDR
The results support direct amygdala involvement in emotion perception but suggest that amygdala activation is not temporally associated with subjective emotion that occurs after the offset of emotion-related stimuli. Expand
