In this chapter, a self-modeling mental network model is presented for cognitive analysis and support processes for a human. These cognitive analysis and support processes are modeled by internal mental models. At the base level, the model is able to perform the analysis and support processes based on these internal mental models. To obtain adaptation of these internal mental models, a first-order self-model is included in the network model. In addition, to obtain control of this adaptation, a second-order self-model is included. This makes the network model a second-order self-modeling network model. The adaptive network model is illustrated for a number of realistic scenarios for a supported car driver.
