Intersubjectivity and metacognition across the lifespan

We believe that the ability of accessing and reporting individual mental contents (metacognition) has an influence in the social-cognitive behavior (intersubjectivity) through the development.

Metacognition refers to the skill of accessing and reporting individual mental contents.

Metacognition is the capacity of accessing and reporting individual mental contents. This experimental program is interested in investigating both the psychobiological foundations of metacognition, as well as its emergence and impact on human development. Through behavioral methods and hormonal and psychophysiological techniques, we investigate: (i) the (neuro) functional mechanism that underlies metacognitive capacity; (ii) the impact of metacognition on coordination with others, in intersubjective contexts; (iii) the role of self-knowledge in emotional regulation and psychopathology.
