The brain is constantly monitoring how one is feeling and functioning - information which is essential to evaluate if an organism is ill, hungry, or short of breath. At the least, such feedback from within enables computation and action to be prioritized for optimum output; at the extreme, it ensures survival. However, little is known about how the brain monitors and reacts to the constantly changing internal physiology. While there has been rapid progress in understanding exteroception, less is known on how we sense and process information from within the organism, such as hunger, respiration, circulation, and excretion. This conference will offer a multidisciplinary approach to discuss recent advances in interoception, by defining the signals that monitor internal states to identifying critical neuronal circuits that drive behavior.

Application Deadline: January 2, 2020 (11:59 p.m. EST)
