The Confidence of a decision could be considered as the internal estimate of decision accuracy. This variable has been studied extensively by different types of recording data such as behavioral, electroencephalography (EEG), eye and electrophysiology data. Although the value of the reported confidence is considered as one of the most important parameters in decision making, the confidence reporting phase might be considered as a restrictive element in investigating the decision process. Thus, decision confidence should be extracted by means of other provided types of information. Here, we proposed eight confidence related properties in EEG and eye data which are significantly descriptive of the defined confidence levels in a random dot motion (RDM) task. As a matter of fact, our proposed EEG and eye data properties are capable of recognizing more than nine distinct levels of confidence. Among our proposed features, the latency of the pupil maximum diameter through the stimulus presentation was established to be the most associated one to the confidence levels. Through the time-dependent analysis of these features, we recognized the time interval of 500�??600 ms after the stimulus onset as an important time in correlating features to the confidence levels.
