Confidence judgments are a central example of metacognition—knowledge about one's own cogni-tive processes. According to this metacognitive view, confidence reports are generated by a sec-ond-order monitoring process based on the quality of internal representations about beliefs. Although neural correlates of decision confidence have been recently...
The neural origins of spontaneous or self-initiated actions are not well understood and their interpretation is controversial. To address these issues, we used a task in which rats decide when to abort waiting for a delayed tone. We recorded neurons in the secondary motor cortex (M2) and interpreted our findings in light of an integration-to-bound...
A fundamental component of decision-making under uncertainty is the ability to assign appropriate levels of confidence to each decision. Although our recent behavioral, electrophysiological and computational studies on orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) revealed that OFC activity correlates with decision confidence (Kepecs et al., 2008), this brain structu...
