Selective attention is thought to be associated with enhanced processing in modality-specific cortex. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate brain response during a taste detection task. We demonstrate that trying to detect the presence of taste in a tasteless solution results in enhanced activity in insula and overlying operculum. The same task does not recruit orbitofrontal cortex (OFC). Instead, the OFC responds preferentially during receipt of an unpredicted taste… CONTINUE READING
