The study focused on the cognitive determinants of the accuracy of feeling-of-knowing (FOK) judgments made on episodic memory information. An individual differences approach was used on a sample of healthy older adults assessed on an episodic FOK task and on several neuropsychological measures. At a global level of analysis of FOK accuracy, the contributions of four general cognitive processes--episodic memory, executive functioning, fluid intelligence and processing speed--were examined… Expand
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 thisExpand
Effects of aging and divided attention on episodic feeling-of-knowing accuracy.
TLDR
It is suggested that the age-related FOK deficit may be due to a lower level of deep encoding, leading to difficulty retrieving target-related contextual details enabling accurate prediction of subsequent recognition. Expand
Study of metamemory in patients with chronic alcoholism using a feeling-of-knowing episodic memory task.
TLDR
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. Expand
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 afterExpand
Aging, metamemory regulation and executive functioning.
TLDR
The findings support the ideas that the monitoring process of episodic memory FOK and the control process of adjusting study time to task difficulty are impaired in older adults and can be explained by the decline of executive-frontal functioning associated to aging. Expand
Are all judgments created equal? An fMRI study of semantic and episodic metamemory predictions
TLDR
These findings suggest that theoretical accounts of the etiology and function of FOKs may benefit from incorporating the prediction directionality (positive/negative) and the memory domain (semantic/episodic) distinctions. Expand
Are feeling-of-knowing and judgment-of-learning different? Evidence from older adults.
TLDR
Results showed that although older adults had similar low levels of memory performance in the JOL task and in the FOK task, metacognitive impairments were only found on the resolution of FOKs, thus supporting the memory constraint hypothesis. Expand
Mild cognitive impairment and feeling-of-knowing in episodic memory
TLDR
It is suggested that memory self-monitoring is not a unitary construct and that amnestic MCI participants have difficulty with prospective memorySelf-Monitoring abilities. Expand
Episodic feeling-of-knowing resolution derives from the quality of original encoding
TLDR
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. Expand

Aging, episodic memory feeling-of-knowing, and frontal functioning.
TLDR
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. Expand
Metamemory monitoring in mild cognitive impairment: Evidence of a less accurate episodic feeling-of-knowing
TLDR
Results showed that the MCI group made less accurate FOK predictions than the control group by overestimating their memory performance on a recognition task, and it was suggested that their memory weakness may lead people with MCI to use other less reliable forms of memory monitoring. Expand
Executive Functioning and Judgment-of-Learning versus Feeling-of-Knowing in Older Adults
TLDR
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. Expand
Episodic feeling-of-knowing accuracy and cued recall in the elderly: evidence for double dissociation involving executive functioning and processing speed.
TLDR
Investigation of adult age differences in a metamemory monitoring task-episodic feeling-of-knowing and in an episodic memory task-cued recall revealed a pattern of double dissociation which indicates a specific relationship between executive score and FOK accuracy, and between speed score and cued recall.

Updating Information in Verbal Working Memory and Executive Functioning
TLDR
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
TLDR
It is suggested that lorazepam impairs metamemory for both episodic and semantic memory, and selectively overestimated their CL judgements for incorrect answers. Expand
Executive functioning as a potential mediator of age-related cognitive decline in normal adults.
TLDR
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.

TLDR
Findings provide functional and anatomical evidence for a dissociation between recall confidence and prospective memory monitoring and are discussed in terms of familiarity and access theories of FOK predictions. Expand
