Gray, Marcus A. and Critchley, Hugo D. (2007) Interoceptive Basis to Craving. Neuron, 54 (2). pp. 183-186. ISSN 0896-6273Full text not available from this repository.
Awareness of one's physiology is an important component of emotion. How might these processes be related to addiction? In a recent issue of Science, Naqvi et al. demonstrated that smoking addiction is disrupted by damage to the insula cortex. This suggests that brain circuits mediating interoception also contribute to craving states.
