"You try to follow your gut feeling you get lost", sang Rihanna. The expressions that we use in daily life reflect the belief that sensations from inside the body (such as from the heart, the stomach or the lungs) influence the decisions that we make. In my research I study the role of interoception –the sensing and perception of information from the body– in human decision-making. I use behavioural measures, electroencephalography and other physiological indicators such as our pupils, our heart rate, or our breathing, to elucidate the interplay between brain and body in decision-making. I am currently supported by a grant from the Wiener-Anspach foundation.
