Feeling of Familiarity
In this chapter, I will defend the intuitively plausible notion that implicit memory and metacognition are unrelated. I will do this in the context of studies that examined the relationship between recognition memory and perceptual fluency. Specifically, I will argue against the view that perceptual fluency, a product of implicit memory, gives rise to the feeling of familiarity in recognition memory via a process of attribution, a metacognitive process.
