Sometimes, we become aware of our body signals and use them in planning and strategic thinking. Here, we show behavioral and neural dissociations between learning to follow one's own heartbeat and metacognitive awareness of one's(More)
At any given moment, we experience a perceptual scene as a single whole and yet we may distinguish a variety of objects within it. This characteristic of perception instantiates two general properties of phenomenological experience: integration and differentiation.

In fact, most standardized interoceptive tasks require directing attention to internal signals. However, most studies in the field have failed to compare attentional modulations between internally- and(More)
