Pain-related cues are evolutionarily primed to capture attention, although evidence of attentional biases towards pain-related information is mixed in healthy individuals. The present study explores whether healthy individuals show significantly different eye-movement behaviours when viewing real-world pain-related scenes compared to neutral scenes. The effect of manipulating via written information the threat value of the pain-related scenes on eye-movement behaviours was also assessed.
