Abstract Accuracy in the perception of heart rate was assessed using a modified two‐alternative‐forced‐choice design adapted from sensory psychophysics. With a group of 12 undergraduate students it was shown that perceptual accuracy is determined by sensitivity rather than bias, and that level of sensitivity can be significantly increased by providing knowledge of results.
