Metacognition of arm movements

We wonder how much people know about the movements they make. For example, how accurately can we describe the fine details of an arm movement? We use behavioural methods to quantify this metacognitive ability and (f)MRI and EEG to understand the brain mechanisms underlying it.
We collaborate with Hermann Müller and Lisa Maurer for this project.


Polina's first pre-print from this project is out, examining people's metacognitive access to very low-level, proximal paremeters of movement (the angle of their arm when they threw a ball) vs. a bit more distal paremeters (the velocity of their arm) of the same movements.
