The Effects of Placebo Analgesia on Interoceptive Abilities (OSF)

In this project, we are interested whether placebo analgesia, besides influencing processing of our own and other people’s pain, has effects on other bodily states that are unrelated to pain. Previous studies have already shed light on associations between pain perception and the perception of one’s own body, also called interoception, but results so far are contradicting and causal investigations of this association are missing.
