In the field of memory, our metacognitive abilities, i.e. our ability to evaluate and predict our memory performance, are clearly the result of a progressive adjustment. For example, we have shown that early childhood is characterised by a highly optimistic increase in memory capacity. This is only modulated when the child is confronted with reality. It is not until adolescence that our metacognition approaches real performance.
We are also exploring metacognition in various neurological pathologies in collaboration with the CMRR at Grenoble University Hospital.
