Interoception (from Latin inter “in the middle of” and recipere “to take in”) is the generic term for those components of the perception of living beings that capture information not about the outside world, but from their own body sections and from your own body sections. A distinction is made between proprioception (perception of body position and movement in space) and visceroception (perception of organ activities).

The perception of the outside world is called exteroception .
