The insular cortex has characteristic functional and anatomical features. In vivo optical imaging with a voltage-sensitive dye demonstrates that excitation induced by stimulation of the insular cortex preferentially propagates toward the rostral direction along the rhinal fissure. This asymmetrical excitatory propagation likely is based on the anatomical evidence that rostrocaudal axonal arbors of layer II/III pyramidal cells tend to extend with a rostral directional preference.
