Interoception, our ability to perceive internal bodily states, is a fundamental part of our conscious experiences and has been a focal point in neuroscience research in recent years.
This article delves into the key findings about interoception, revealing how this 'sixth sense' shapes our emotions, decision-making, and even our sense of self.
Furthermore, we will explore how impaired interoception contributes to various mental health disorders such as depression and eating disorders.
By advancing our understanding of interoception, we can potentially uncover more effective ways to treat these conditions and enhance overall well-being.
