© 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. All rights reserved. The past two decades have witnessed the birth of the cognitive neurosciences, spurred in large part by the advent of brain scanning technology. From this discipline our understanding of psychological constructs ranging from perception to memory to emotion have been enriched by knowledge of their neural underpinnings. The same is now true of metacognition. This volume represents a first attempt to take stock of the rapidly developing field of the neuroscience of metacognition in humans and non-human animals, and in turn examine the implications of neuroscience data for psychological accounts of metacognitive processes.
