Abstract

'Feeling-of-doing' accuracy in a temporal ordering task in 33 patients with frontal lobe lesions and a matched control group was investigated. The temporal ordering task used word lists that had high, medium, or no semantic interrelatedness. Patients with frontal lobe lesions showed an impairment in temporal ordering across all three word lists. Both groups performed better on the lists with higher semantic interrelatedness. Patients with frontal lobe lesions overestimated their ability to order words accurately. On the less semantically interrelated lists, metamemory-judgment in patients with frontal lesions did not correlate with their performance. These results indicate that both temporal order judgment and metacognitive decisions about temporal order judgment are subserved by the prefrontal cortex and further clarifies the role of the frontal lobes in behavioral monitoring.
