Caption: Language area brain activation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the brain of a man with with damage to the left insular cortex. A number of different views are seen showing transverse sections through different levels of the brain. Front of the brain is at top. Language areas within the brain are seen to be active (coloured areas) during sentence generation from a list of verbs. The insular cortex is thought to be primarily involved with emotions and feelings, in particular body image and cravings. Damage can therefore cause emotional problems, but language processes are largely unaffected.
