Empirical evidence and theoretical models both increasingly emphasize the importance of interoceptive processing in mental health.

However, current methods to measure interoceptive ability are limited in a number of ways, limiting the utility and interpretation of interoceptive biomarkers in psychiatry. I will present some newly developed measures and models which aim to improve our understanding of disordered brain-body interaction in psychiatric illnesses.
