The insular cortex appears to have a crucial role in emotional processing and cognitive control in bipolar disorder (BD). However, most previous studies focused on the entire insular region of BD, neglecting the topological profile of its subregions. Our study aimed to investigate its subregion topological characteristics using the resting-state functional connectivity (rsFC) in patients with BD on depression episode. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of 28 depressed BD patients and 28 age- and gender-matched healthy controls (HCs) were acquired. We observed that compared to HCs, depressed patients with BD exhibited significantly decreased rsFC between the right ventral anterior insula (vAI) and the left middle temporal gyrus/the right angular, the right dorsal anterior insula (dAI) and the left precuneus, as well as the right posterior insula and the right lingual gyrus. Furthermore, hyperconnectivity was observed between the left dAI and the left medial frontal gyrus, as well as right dAI and left superior temporal gyrus in BD depression. However, no significant group effect was observed between aberrant FC patterns and clinical variables. These findings revealed the functional connectivity patterns of insular subregions for the depressed BD patients, suggesting the potential neural substrate of insular subregions involved in depressive episode of BD. Hence, these results may provide a neural substrate for the potential treatment target of BD on depression episode.
