When we are conscious of a sensory event, we experience a confident feeling that we certainly know the perceived world here and now. Using a modified wagering task, the authors found the neural correlates and causes of 'perceptual confidence' in the monkey pulvinar. The pulvinar responses showed a peculiar tuning curve, which was also observed for explicit reports of subjective confidence in humans. These results indicate a common rule behind confidence computation in monkeys and humans.
