Differential Effects of Experience and Information Cues on Metacognitive Judgments About Others’ Change Detection Abilities

Interestingly, change blindness led to lower predictions, which point to joint contributions of experience and information cues on metacognitive judgments about other people’s change detection abilities.

Errors in visual metacognition using cognitive illusions

The present research comprises five experiments that examine egocentric biases and metacognitive errors in visual metacognition. We used cognitive illusions/magic tricks as stimuli as they exploit

Metacognition and mindreading: one or two functions?

Given disagreements about the architecture of the mind, the nature of self-knowledge, and its epistemology, the question of how to understand the function and scope of metacognition – the control of

The goal of this article is to critically examine the notion of metacognition, based on comparative, developmental and neuroscientific publications. A number of researchers define "metacognition" as

A Three-Feature Model to Predict Colour Change Blindness

A fully automated model to predict colour change blindness in cartoon images based on image complexity, change magnitude and observer experience is introduced and the predictions of the proposed model correlate significantly with measured detection times.

Disjunctivism, hallucinations, and metacognition.

Two versions of this account can be formulated, depending on whether metacognition is understood as explicit metarepresentation or as implicit monitoring of first-order informational states, and the first is more promising, as it embodies a more realistic view of perceptual phenomenology as having both sensory and affective aspects.

Do Irrelevant Sounds Impair the Maintenance of All Characteristics of Speech in Memory?

A paradigm in which participants had to maintain the content, pitch and speaker size of auditorily presented speech information and used various auditory distractors to generate interference found that only distractors with spectrotemporal variations impaired the detection, which shows that similar interference mechanisms occur whether there are one or more speech attributes to maintain in memory.


While, prima facie, virtue/credit approaches in epistemology would appear to be in tension with distributed/extended approaches in cognitive science, Pritchard (2010) has recently argued that the

Memory Monitoring and Control in Japanese and German Preschoolers.

It is suggested that early memory monitoring and control have both culturally similar and diverse aspects, as well as broader sociocultural influences on metacognition, in Japanese and German preschool-aged children.



"Change Blindness" Blindness: An Implicit Measure of a Metacognitive Error.

Most people have strong but mistaken intuitions about how perception and cognition work. Such intuitions can give rise to especially pernicious ‘metacognitive errors’, which are directly fueled by

Change Blindness Blindness: The Metacognitive Error of Overestimating Change-detection Ability

Recent research has demonstrated that subjects fail to detect large between-view changes to natural and artificial scenes. Yet, most people (including psychologists) believe that they would detect

Thinking and seeing : visual metacognition in adults and children

Experimental research has shown that people miss apparently obvious visual discontinuities -- a phenomenon known as "change blindness." For example, in one experiment, subjects watching a brief film

The visual metacognition questionnaire: a measure of intuitions about vision.

A broad survey of people's intuitions about vision is presented, which replicate previous overestimates and underestimates of visual performance and document new misestimates of performance in tasks that assess inattention blindness and visual knowledge.

Metacognition in psychophysical judgment: An unfolding view of comparative judgments of mental workload

No support is provided for the view that propositionally based semantic “ease”- “difficulty” codes serve as the basis for these metacognitive comparative judgments of ease and difficulty.
