In previous imaging studies the insular cortex (IC) has been identified as an essential part of the processing of a wide spectrum of perception and sensorimotor integration. We explored signs of a vestibular tone imbalance such as the deviation of the subjective visual vertical (SVV), and we performed comprehensive sensory profiling. We applied voxel-lesion behavior mapping analysis in 20 patients with acute unilateral cortical damage. We conclude that the IC is a primary sensory brain region merging the different sensations.
