Visual confidence refers to an observer’s ability to judge the accuracy of her perceptual decisions. Even though confidence judgments have been recorded since the early days of psychophysics, it is only recently that they have been recognized as essential for a more complete understanding of visual perception (Kiani & Shadlen, 2009, Science; Barthelmé & Mamassian, 2010, PNAS). The purpose of the project will be to test psychophysically in human adults specific predictions of models of confidence judgments that are issued from signal detection theory and accumulation models.
