Feelings About Thoughts, Time, and Me

Feelings About Thoughts, Time, and Me

Awareness emerges in the anterior insular cortex

(p.216) 7 Feelings About Thoughts, Time, and Me
How Do You Feel?

A. D. (Bud) Craig

Princeton University Press

This chapter describes evidence that the anterior insular cortex (AIC) is activated during thoughts, and explains how cognitive feelings are generated in the model of interoceptive and homeostatic integration. Presenting evidence that the AIC engenders subjective awareness and feelings about time, the chapter also shows how a cinemascopic structure in the model of interoceptive feelings can produce awareness across time, as well as musical feelings and subjectivity. It argues that the key functional role of the AIC in humans is the control of network activity in the brain, then relates this concept to studies that suggest a major role of the AIC in fluid intelligence and in behavioral guidance based on energy utilization.

Keywords:   anterior insular cortex, thoughts, cognitive feelings, homeostatic integration, interoceptive integration, awareness, interoceptive feelings, fluid intelligence, behavioral guidance, energy utilization
