Abstract
Gastrointestinal organs are innervated by both vagal and spinal afferents. While much emphasis has been given to vagal pathways, less is known about the role of spinal signaling in interoception. I will discuss recent evidence supporting the notion that spinal, rather than vagal, afferents are the major conveyors of gut mechanical signals to brain. I will also review candidate medullary and cortical spinal targets involved in the central representation of internal tissues and organ volume.
