Abstract
''Feeling-of-doing'' accuracy in a temporal ordering task in 33 patien ts with frontal lobe lesions and a matched control group was investiga ted. The temporal ordering task used word lists that had high, medium, or no semantic interrelatedness. Patients with frontal lobe lesions s howed an impairment in temporal ordering across all three word lists. Both groups performed better on the lists with higher semantic interre latedness. Patients with frontal lobe lesions overestimated their abil ity to order words accurately. On the less semantically interrelated l ists, metamemory judgment in patients with frontal lesions did not cor relate with their performance. These results indicate that both tempor al order judgment and metacognitive decisions about temporal order jud gment are subserved by the prefrontal cortex and further clarifies the role of the frontal lobes in behavioral monitoring.
