What does Interoceptive Awareness mean?

Interoceptive awareness refers to the ability to feel sensations within the body, just as vision is the ability to see. It is the awareness of one’s own body sensations.

The IAI tool measures the percentage of interoceptive awareness over time and for each measurement. It is specifically designed to track the progressive interoceptive changes in the brain areas known as the “insular cortex” and “somatosensory cortex” resulting from meditation.

It can also be used to measure changes in pain areas over time or at a given time.
