The relationship between executive functions, episodic feeling-of-knowing and confidence judgements

Metamemory processes and executive control may be related, given that both are frontally mediated. However, previous behavioural research has been limited in identifying common processes driving this

Effects of aging and divided attention on episodic feeling-of-knowing accuracy.

Study of metamemory in patients with chronic alcoholism using a feeling-of-knowing episodic memory task.

The monitoring measure (FOK) and the subjective measure of metamemory (MIA) showed that patients with chronic alcoholism overestimated their memory capacities, andEpisodic memory deficit and executive dysfunction would explain metamamory decline in this clinical population.

Functional Neuroimaging Investigation of the Neural Mechanisms for Successful Feeling-of-Knowing Judgments

A feeling-of-knowing (FOK) is a sense of knowing that an item would be recognizable if seen again later, despite one’s current inability to recall that item from memory. An FOK judgment occurs after

Are feeling-of-knowing and judgment-of-learning different? Evidence from older adults.

Mild cognitive impairment and feeling-of-knowing in episodic memory

It is suggested that memory self-monitoring is not a unitary construct and that amnestic MCI participants have difficulty with prospective memorySelf-Monitoring abilities.

Episodic feeling-of-knowing resolution derives from the quality of original encoding

The memory constraint hypothesis is introduced, which argues that deficits are an outcome of differences in the level of learning, and the use of effective strategies during encoding correlated with memory performance and FOKs, even for unrecalled pairs.

Parlez-vous français? Episodic and Semantic Feeling of Knowing in Aging

As well as memory performance, the sensations and experiences that accompany memory retrieval can beinformative regarding changes to memory that occur with aging. One such experience is the Feeling



Aging, episodic memory feeling-of-knowing, and frontal functioning.

Hierarchical regression analyses showed that the composite frontal functioning score accounted for a large proportion of the age-related variance in FOK accuracy, which supports the idea that the Age-related decline in episodic memory Fok accuracy is mainly the result of executive or frontal limitations associated with aging.

Executive Functioning and Judgment-of-Learning versus Feeling-of-Knowing in Older Adults

A correlational analysis showed that only FOK accuracy was correlated with the executive measures, suggesting that executive control is not equally implicated in FOK and JOL.

Updating Information in Verbal Working Memory and Executive Functioning

Older adults tested using the updating working-memory task appeared consistent with the model of working memory with a central executive system involved in the updating process and related to the executive-frontal functioning, and a phonological loop system involvement in the storage of verbal information and not linked to executive-Frontal functions.

Confidence level and feeling of knowing for episodic and semantic memory: an investigation of lorazepam effects on metamemory

It is suggested that lorazepam impairs metamemory for both episodic and semantic memory, and selectively overestimated their CL judgements for incorrect answers.

Executive functioning as a potential mediator of age-related cognitive decline in normal adults.

Although age-related effects on various cognitive abilities were substantially reduced after statistical control of the variance in measures hypothesized to represent executive functioning, there was only weak evidence for the existence of distinct constructs corresponding to executive functioning or to aspects of executive control concerned with inhibition, updating, or time sharing.

The Unity and Diversity of Executive Functions and Their Contributions to Complex “Frontal Lobe” Tasks: A Latent Variable Analysis

The results suggest that it is important to recognize both the unity and diversity ofExecutive functions and that latent variable analysis is a useful approach to studying the organization and roles of executive functions.
