Implicit metacognition, explicit uncertainty, and the monitoring/control distinction in animal metacognition

  • Lisa K. Son (a1), Bennett L. Schwartz (a2) and Nate Kornell (a3)


Smith et al. demonstrate the viability of animal metacognition research. We commend their effort and suggest three avenues of research. The first concerns whether animals are explicitly aware of their metacognitive processes. The second asks whether animals have metaknowledge of their own uncertain responses. The third issue concerns the monitoring/control distinction. We suggest some ways in which these issues elucidate metacognitive processes in nonhuman animals.
