Metacognition, the capacity 'to think about thinking' and thus to reflect and to master interpersonal problems on a mentalistic basis, is often impaired among patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders and has been suggested as a potential treatment target.

Accordingly the current study sought to examine whether different patterns of metacognition deficits have different neurocognitive correlates.
