Event Description

This investigator meeting, hosted by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), on November 11, 2023, will highlight recent advances in interoception research as relevant to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Blueprint for Neuroscience Functional Neural Circuits of Interoception Initiative. Researchers are welcome to attend online or in person at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. 

Invited speakers will focus on basic and human subject research related to functional neural circuit analysis of interoception. The overall goal of this investigator meeting is to review the recent scientific advances on interoception research, facilitate the building of collaborations, and brainstorm future research.

This event will feature a keynote speech on cutting-edge behavioral analysis relevant to interoception, followed by selected junior investigator flash talk presentations. The meeting will have two additional scientific sessions on recent advances on the neural connections between the brain and one internal organ system or multiple internal organ systems through vagal, spinal, and humoral pathways. In addition, the event will feature 20 selected poster presentations from in-person attendees.

  • Early-stage investigators are invited to apply to present an in-person flash talk or poster presentation. The online abstract submission form will be available soon and abstracts will be due on July 14, 2023.
