Interoception: a scientific link between Autism and Anorexia

Season #1 Episode #3

We've all heard of the five basic senses, but did you know that there are three more, lesser known senses? One of these is interoception, or our ability to monitor the inner state of our bodies. In today's science-based solo episode, I discuss the following questions: 

  • What is interoception?
  • What does the biology of the brain have to do with interoception?
  • What is the role of interoception in Autism?
  • What is the role of interoception in Anorexia?
  • Why Autistic individuals and people with Anorexia may lack interoceptive awareness
  • Interoception as an explanation for lack of hunger cues
  • Why people with Anorexia often don't think they're "sick enough"
  • Why people with Anorexia may have a distorted body image
  • How to improve interoceptive awareness
