Anterior Insula Reflects Inferential Errors in Value-Based Decision-making and Perception [article]

Leyla Loued-Khenissi, Adrien Pfeuffer, Wolfgang Einhaeuser, Kerstin Preuschoff
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
The process of inference is theorized to underlie neural processes, including value-based decision-making and perception.  ...  To determine if inference characterizes both perception and value-based decision-making, we directly compared uncertainty signals in visual perception and an economic task using fMRI.  ...  risk and surprise implicate the anterior insula in uncertainty, in line with previous studies on value-based decision-making (Preuschoff et al., 2006; Payzan-Le Nestour et al., 2013; Platt & Huettel,  ...

Brain networks of perceptual decision-making: an fMRI ALE meta-analysis

Max C. Keuken, Christa Müller-Axt, Robert Langner, Simon B. Eickhoff, Birte U. Forstmann, Jane Neumann
2014 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
The results argue in favor of the involvement of a frontal-parietal network in general perceptual decision-making that is possibly complemented by the basal ganglia, and modulated in substantial parts  ...  In contrast, expectation of reward, an important aspect of many decision-making processes, shows almost no overlap with the general perceptual decision-making network.  ...  The fact that the anterior insula is active during simple perceptual decision-making, dissociates between low and high task difficulty, and is involved in reward-based decision-making supports the hypothesis  ...

2009 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
Acknowledgements We thank Klaas Enno Stephan and Peter Bossaerts for useful comments on the present paper. HDC was supported by a programme grant from the Wellcome Trust.  ...  As decisions between equally expected rewards are biased by the degree of uncertainty, uncertainty itself possesses motivational value 32 and can be reflected in a feeling state.  ...  The role of anterior insula in uncertainty and uncertainty prediction Research associated to Neuroeconomics, which explores the neural basis of motivational decision making, suggest that AI processes and  ...

Interoception in anxiety and depression

Martin P. Paulus, Murray B. Stein
2010 Brain Structure and Function  
The connection between increased but noisy afferent interoceptive input, self-referential and belief-based states, and top-down modulation of poorly predictive signals is integrated into a neuroanatomical  ...  The advantage of this conceptualization is the ability to specifically examine the interface between basic interoception, selfreferential belief-based states, and enhanced top-down modulation to attenuate  ...  In summary, the anterior insula is important for subjective feeling states (Craig 2002; Critchley et al. 2004) , and takes part in modulatory control of decision-making by interacting with other limbic  ...

Functional dissociation of stimulus intensity encoding and predictive coding of pain in the insula

Stephan Geuter, Sabrina Boll, Falk Eippert, Christian Büchel
2017 eLife  
Skin conductance, pupil dilation, and anterior insula responses to cued pain stimuli strictly followed the response patterns hypothesized by the predictive coding model, whereas posterior insula encoded  ...  Classic theories suggest that cortical regions either reflect stimulus intensity or additive effects of intensity and expectations, respectively.  ...  Interestingly, the anterior insula in our study also shows a strong surprise or prediction error response.  ...

Neural Correlates of Anticipation Risk Reflect Risk Preferences

S. Rudorf, K. Preuschoff, B. Weber
2012 Journal of Neuroscience  
In addition, risk prediction error signals in anterior insula, inferior frontal gyrus, and anterior cingulate indicate that risk averters do not dissociate properly between gambles that are more or less  ...  Decision making under risk has been studied both behaviorally and on a neural level. It remains unclear, however, how risk attitudes are encoded and integrated with choice.  ...  In decision making under risk, outcomes are not certain but occur with known probabilities.  ...
