The study of metacognition can shed light on some fundamental issues about consciousness and its role in behavior. Metacognition research concerns the processes by which people self reflect on their own cognitive and memory processes (monitoring), and how they put their metaknowledge to use in regulating their information processing and behavior (control). Experimental research on metacognition has addressed the following questions: First, what are the bases of metacognitive judgments that… Expand
METACOGNITION AND DECISION MAKING: BETWEEN FIRST AND THIRD PERSON PERSPECTIVE
The aim of the article is firstly, to show how metacognitive monitoring, control (regulation) and meta-knowledge are important in guiding decision making and secondly, to argue that researchingExpand
Inaugurating the Study of Animal Metacognition.
  • J. Smith

  • International journal of comparative psychology
  • 2010
TLDR
This research area opens a new window on reflective mind in animals, illuminates the phylogenetic emergence of metacognition, and may reveal the antecedents of human consciousness. Expand
Metacognitive monitoring of attention performance and its influencing factors
TLDR
Monitoring ability significantly decreased with increasing task difficulty, was significantly better for post than for pre-assessment, and significantly increased with practice, suggesting that the examined factors influenced monitoring of attention performance equivalent to the influence of these factors found in metamemory research. Expand
Shadowing the wandering mind: how understanding the mind-wandering state can inform our appreciation of conscious experience.
TLDR
Candidate covert markers for the mind-wandering state are described, which allow the phenomenon to be observed without direct interference, minimizing the concern that instructions to introspect necessarily change conscious experience. Expand
Higher-order awareness, misrepresentation and function
  • D. Rosenthal
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2012
TLDR
It is argued that, although both consciousness and metacognition involve higher-order psychological states, they have little more in common and there is unlikely that there is much, if any, utility to mental states' being conscious over and above the utility those states have when they are not conscious. Expand
One co computa Higher-order awareness , misrepresentation and function
Conscious mental states are states we are in some way aware of. I compare higher-order theories of consciousness, which explain consciousness by appeal to such higher-order awareness (HOA), andExpand
The highs and lows of theoretical interpretation in animal-metacognition research
TLDR
A constructive case study for considering theoretical problems that often confront comparative psychologists in animal metacognition and addresses diverse issues of scientific judgement and interpretation within comparative psychology. Expand
The role of answer fluency and perceptual fluency as metacognitive cues for initiating analytic thinking
TLDR
The data to this point suggest that perceptual fluency prompts additional processing in general, but this processing may results in higher accuracy only for the most cognitively able. Expand
Intuitive decisions on the fringes of consciousness: Are they conscious and does it matter?
Decision making research often dichotomises between more deliberative, cognitive processes and more heuristic, intuitive and emotional processes. We argue that within this two-systems frameworkExpand
Metacognitive illusions for auditory information: Effects on monitoring and control
TLDR
The findings of this study indicate that highly accessible auditory information is integrated into JOLs and restudy choices, even when this information does not influence actual memory performance. Expand

Examination of the cues that affect noetic feelings suggest that not only do these feelings inform controlled action, but they are also informed by feedback from the outcome of that action. Expand

An evaluation of the proposal by Fernandez-Duque et al. is made, and it is suggested that there is considerable convergence of issues associated with metacognition, executive control, working memory, and frontal lobe function. Expand
Metacognition and Awareness

A recently published study is described in which a blindsight subject could change the schema with which he processed cue information in orienting spatial attention task without reporting any awareness of this change, or of the cues and targets which respectively directed and were the object his attention.

The Unconscious Feeling of Knowing: A Commentary on Koriat's Paper
TLDR
The research on feeling of knowing will not resolve the question of whether consciousness is merely epiphenomenal, and this work agrees that feelings of knowing are produced through a monitoring of one's knowledge, and that this monitoring can affect the control of behavior. Expand
