In recent years the scope of metacognition has expanded. Metacognitive processes seem to be involved in practically all cognitive faculties: perception, action, memory, learning, decision making, and conceptual thought are some examples. It encompasses many cases where metacognition operates without the person engaging in deliberate monitoring or control. Evidence for metacognition also extends to pre-verbal infants and non-human animals. But are there fundamentally different types of metacognition involved in different cases? And how should we capture the distinction: procedural vs. analytic, experience-based vs. information-based, implicit vs. explicit, core vs. late-developing, or some other way?
