The main assumption of the present study is that emotional experience is coupled to perception of bodily processes. From this it is deduced that individuals who show good perception of heart activityExpand

Accuracy of heartbeat perception is reflected in the amplitude of the heartbeat-evoked brain potential.
Neurotransmission from the heart to the brain results in a heartbeat-evoked potential (HEP). In this study, the influence of the ability to detect one's heartbeats based on the HEP was examined.Expand

Reduced perception of bodily signals in anorexia nervosa.
OBJECTIVE Interoceptive awareness is known to be impaired in eating disorders. To date, it has remained unclear whether this variable is related to the construct of interoceptive sensitivity.Expand

Brain structures involved in interoceptive awareness and cardioafferent signal processing: A dipole source localization study
Afferent signals from the body play an important role for emotional and motivational aspects of behavior. Nevertheless, little is known about the cortical and subcortical structures involved inExpand

Brain structures mediating cardiovascular arousal and interoceptive awareness
Different emotions are accompanied by different bodily states and it is unclear which brain structures are involved in both, the cerebral representation of the bodily change and the representation ofExpand

Neural systems connecting interoceptive awareness and feelings
In many theories of emotions the representations of bodily responses play an important role for subjective feelings. We tested the hypothesis that the perception of bodily states is positivelyExpand

Differential effects of anxiety and depression on interoceptive accuracy
Background: Feedback from the body is assumed to be altered in depression. Nevertheless, empirical studies investigating this assumed relationship remain sparse. This study aimed to examineExpand

From the heart to the brain: a study of heartbeat contingent scalp potentials.
Heartbeat perception has become the most widely studied example of visceral perception. In the present study scalp potentials contingent to the visceral event "heartbeat" were investigated. ScalpExpand

Heartbeat evoked potentials (HEP): topography and influence of cardiac awareness and focus of attention.
Heartbeat evoked potentials (HEP) were recorded from good and poor heartbeat perceivers under two conditions differing in focus of attention. Under the first condition (ATT), subjects were instructedExpand

Interoceptive sensitivity and emotion processing: an EEG study.
Theories of emotion consider the self-perception of visceral activity to play an important role in emotion. This study examined the relationship between interoceptive sensitivity and both theExpand
