Abstract: Background and aims. Gating models of sensory perception suggest that increased attention towards the self leads to more on-line processing of sensory information and less report bias. However, little is known about the interaction of self-awareness with fearful beliefs about bodily sensations. In the present study, we explored report bias of breathing-related sensation under increased self-awareness compared to increased focus on external cues related to breathlessness. We expected report bias under internal focus to be lower than under external focus. However, we expected this effect of internal focus to be moderated by fearful beliefs about bodily sensations.
