Unraveling the role of interoceptive abilities in aesthetic appreciation of movement

Project description

Explaining interoception in aesthetics

The role of interoception (processing and perception of visceral bodily signals) in human behaviour is a promising focus for neuroscience. Recent research has shown that the appreciation of dance aesthetics is related to visual, sensorimotor and reward mechanisms and depends on individual interoceptive experiences, understanding of emotions and cognitive processes. However, to know how brain reactions depend on internal body signals, the link between interoception and movement appreciation must be explained. To this end, the EU-funded InteroceptionAction project will research the role of the impact of autonomic nervous functions on aesthetic experience using neurofunctional methods combined with interactive training procedures unveiling temporal/spatial measures of brain activity. Results will enable new clinical and entertainment frameworks.
