Chapter 4 endnote 26, from How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:

The second part [of the interoceptive network] is a region that represents sensations inside your body, called your primary interoceptive cortex.

Primary interoceptive cortex extends from the dorsal bank of mid insula to the posterior sector of the insula. The mid insula represents more viscerosensory sensations, whereas the posterior represents more nociceptive and temperature-related sensations.[1][2]
