Modeling Interaction between Metacognition and Emotion in a Cognitive Architecture

Eva Hudlicka

While research in metacognition has grown significantly in the past 10 years, there has been a relative lack of research devoted to the focused study of the interactions between metacognition and affective processes. Computational models represent a useful tool which can help remedy this situation by constructing causal models of demonstrated correlational relationships, and by generating empirical hypotheses which can be verified experimentally. In this paper we describe enhancements to an existing cognitive-affective architecture that will enable it to perform a subset of metacognitive functions. We focus on modeling the role of a specific metacognitive factor, the feeling of confidence, and the anxiety-linked metacognitive strategy of emotion-focused coping.
