Are we mistaking response caution for metacognition? In our new paper, published in Nature Communications, we show that this might be the case, because measures of metacognitive accuracy that are based on signal detection theory (such as M-ratio) are confounded with response caution. Instead, we propose a novel dynamic measure of metacognitive accuracy, v-ratio, based on evidence accumulation models. Read the tweeprint here.
