In episode 17, Sandy and Cory attempt to tackle a difficult theoretical paper (difficult for non-neuroscientists, at least) discussing some potential implications of interoception in chronic pain. The discussion wades into “embodied cognition” and “predictive processing” among many other models that this paper attempts to cover. Also, we uncover the real reason why Sandy is going to Japan.
