This chapter reviews orbitofrontal activation during emotion induction in neuroimaging studies of humans. Against the backdrop of prevailing theories of emotion, as well as the general neuroanatomy of emotional processing, techniques for emotion induction are outlined, and the role of the orbitofrontal cortex is explored. These studies range from script induced emotions to exposure to emotional facial expressions. The chapter concludes that the orbitofrontal plays an important role in the production of affective states, as well as affective and autonomic regulation. These functions are mediated through interactions between orbitofrontal and other cortical, paralimbic, limbic, and sub-cortical structures.

Keywords:   autonomic, emotion, affect, regulation, facial expression, neuroimaging
