The Science of Interoception and its Roles in Nervous System Disorders



April 16, 2019 - 12:00 AM to April 17, 2019 - 12:00 AM


The objective of this workshop is to identify gaps in research related to the science of interoception and its roles in nervous system disorders as well as to develop strategies and recommendations to facilitate the advancement of this area of research. The workshop will bring together expertise from diverse fields in basic neuroscience and clinical research to address two major connections – the connections between brain and body and the connections between basic research and human/clinical research. Areas of focus include: neural circuitry underlying the dynamic interactions between the central and peripheral nervous systems; Interoceptive processes in associated diseases and disorders; effect of modulating interoceptive processes and potential interventions/therapies; and development of technologies and methodologies to enhance interoceptive research.
