Investigating the role of exteroception in modulating interoception

Commonly used measures of interoception—the brain’s perception of the body’s internal state—only subjectively capture the body’s interpretation of hunger and satiety signaling. The Coleman Lab is developing objective, noninvasive, electrophysiologic approaches to assess human hunger and satiety signaling and how external senses modulate this signaling. The lab will use the Koret pilot grant funds to investigate the coupling between the electrogastrogram and electroencephalogram and how these are impacted by exteroceptive cues.
