Successful memory typically implies both objective accuracy and subjective confidence, but there are instances when confidence and accuracy diverge. This dissociation suggests that there may be distinct neural patterns of activation related to confidence and accuracy. We used event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the encoding of novel facename associations, assessed with a postscan memory test that included objective measures of accuracy and subjective measures of… CONTINUE READING
